Today's colors come courtesy of Barb, and great colors they are!  Yummy, delicious, candy colors!  Here is my take:


This card started out totally differently than the way it ended!!  That ever happen to you?  The RHR panel and the heart have been stamped with Linen.  The RHR panel has been CB'd with Swiss Dots and everything has been distressed with Close to Cocoa ink.  I took this picture in the evening.....it really looks much nicer IRL!  Here is the inside:

I know it's faint, but I stamped the heart again in Pink Pirouette ink.




And the sketch is from Amy Rysavy :

AMYRS56 I did put the bow in the center as I thought it looked more pleasing to me!  I also thought the sentiment from PTI's Quilter's Sampler Sentiments was perfect for this image!

  1. Great card, LeAnne! I love the warm homey feel of it and I really love those cute buttons!!

  2. Love this and that color challenge! This is another one I can manage (snicker!), so you can count on one from me!

  3. I just love this card! The plaid bg is so pretty and those buttons are so sweet! It's adorable!

  4. Adorable Card!
    Has a country look to it :)

  5. Such a nice card! I love the country feel of it. ~chris

  6. If this finished differently than it started, that may not be a bad thing. The end result is great.

  7. This is so pretty, LeAnne! I love the softness of it, and love the heart stamped on the inside, too!

  8. Love this card, LeAnne. So soft and sweet. I love those buttons and the layout is great!

  9. Beautiful card! You asked about the sentiment stamp on my card, it's not a SU! stamp set. It's actually a clear Inkadinkado set. I can send you a picture if you'd like to see the whole set. I use it often, as it's really pretty with the circles that accompany the sentiments.

    Have a wonderful evening!
