Sending Hugs

I wanted to participate in this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #331.  The colors are light pink, bright pink, green and kraft.  

I used Stampin' Up's Crumb Cake card stock as my base and stamped the large flower in SU's Melon Mambo and the leaves in Wild Wasabi inks.  The stamp set I used is SU's Peaceful Petals.

On a scrap piece of Gina K's pure luxury white card stock, I stamped the large flower in SU's Melon Mambo and colored it with 3 Copic markers (RV10, R20 & RV25) and also colored the leaves with Copic markers (G43 & G82) and cut the flower and leaves out and mounted them on the card with pop dots after wrapping SU's thick baker's twine in Strawberry Slush.  

To finish off the card, I cut a piece of SU's Wild Wasabi card stock from SU's Banner dies and stamped sending from PaperTrey Ink's Big Hugs stamp set in Wild Wasabi ink, too.  I cut out  one of the hug dies from PTI's Big Hugs die set from a piece of SU's Blushing Bride card stock.  I also ran clear Wink of Stella across the flower and the word Hugs for a little sparkle.

Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out the other beautiful cards made with the great colors at CTD #331.
