It seems that this is the time of year for pinks and reds so it is fitting that Sheri chose this color duo for our newest Color Hues challenge. I wanted to create something other than a Valentine themed card. This is what transpired with some "new to me" products I had sitting out on my desk.

Color Hues #56
While this is still a fairly simple card there are a few creative touches that aren't showing up well in my photo. You can easily see the ombre' ink blended background however the subtle glimmer of Perfect Pearls isn't really showing through. The leaves were die cut from a cover die but you need to look closely to see that I dry embossed the panel prior to adhering it to the background. The sentiment background is the same red I used in the panel. The sentiment itself was heat embossed in white with stacked layers in red below it. I added some shimmery pearls to finish off the card.
Hero Arts - Leaves and Vines Fancy die
Honeybee Stamps - Thanks a Bunch stamp & die set
Simon Says Stamp - Crystal Dimension 3D embossing folder
Ranger Perfect Pearls in the color perfect pearls
Distress Oxide inks
Trinity Stamps - Something New pearl embellishments
Since I used some new to me products I'm also adding this to the current Inkspirational challenge.
I invite you to join us over at the Color Hues blog where you'll see lots of pink and red inspiration from our DT as well as our special guests. I do hope to see your card in our gallery!
