He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

The Crew at Kitchen Sink Stamps is excited today to have Connie who is currently Guest Designer present this week's challenge.

Connie's challenge is entitled "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" and requires that we use one of the fabulous floral sets from Kitchen Sink Stamps to create a Valentine. The twist is that no red or pink are allowed!

As you can see, I chose to use the 3 Step Pansy. I decided today to add a little dimension and texture to my blossom. I stamped the complete pansy twice. The first pansy I cut out the entire blossom. The second pansy, I cut out only from layer two up. I then distressed and inked the edges before layering them on top of each other.

The card front is 5 1/2 inches square.

Join us in today's challenge and link your card to our Paper Craft Planet group page! Be sure to include the tag KSCC#7. And while you're at it, link it to the What's Cook'n with Your Kitchen Sink Stamps Contest over at Kitchen Sink where prizes are to be had for the lucky winners!
