Paper Smooches and Color Throwdown {Love Will Keep US Warm}

 

Did you see the fun colours over at the Colour Throwdown? I just love the mix of pink, green and yellow with kraft!!! Swoon! And then I was inspired by the FUN inspiration photo over at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge...have a look!! Hilarious! 


So I created a love themed card and don't the two lovebirds in the photo look warm and cozy, hence my sentiment "Love Will Keep us Warm". I decided to also use the sweet heart image from the Paper Smooches set called "Warm Hearts". I love the country feel of these hearts and the graphic in the CTD colour story got "Country" in my brain!

{Supplies}
Stamps: Warm Hearts
Inks: Melon Mambo, SO Saffron, Lucky Limeade and Black
Papers: White, Kraft, Melon Mambo, Bazzill (Avalon Paper)
Extras: Baker's Twine, 1" Square Punch


I also decided to play along with the lovely ladies at The Pink Elephant in their Anything Goes Challenge!
