First Heart2Heart Design Team Challenge

Welcome to the first Heart 2 Heart Challenge hosted by Mary Vogel and a select group of Close To My Heart consultants called the Design Team or 'DT' for short. I am so excited to be bringing this challenge blog to you and most proud to be a member of the very first Design Team. This weekly challenge blog is a venue for us to show what fantastic products Close To My Heart has to offer. I hope you will find inspiration here and will join us each week to share your beautiful artwork.

Some of the rules for participating in the weekly challenges:
  • Although you must use Close To My Heart products in your creations, you do not need to use 100% CTMH.
  • You must follow the details of each challenge closely.
  • There will be a top five, H2H Friday Five, announced every week on Friday at the end of a challenge so you must have your project submitted by 10pm on Sunday of the week of the challenge.
  • Every month, at the end of the month, we will choose a guest DT member from all the chosen Friday Fives for the month. So be sure to do your best work in order to be included in 2 weeks of challenges the following month.
  • Sponsored prizes will be chosen at random by random.org.

The first challenge was to use these three colors ...Sweet Leaf, Sunflower and Chocolate. Now you really wouldn't think that these colors would go together, would you? Well, I didn't either until I started playing around with them and came up with the card below.

I am actually very pleased with this card. I liked it so much I decorated the inside as well. I used a couple different techniques on this card~dry embossing and ink distressing. A little bit of Liquid Glass on the candle flames makes them come to life! The stamp set used is 'Piece of Cake' which was the Stamp of the Month for February 2010. Although it is no longer available, perhaps many of you already have the stamp set and can share it with those who don't.

Below is a list of all supplies used:
  • 1242 Sunflower cardstock
  • X5643 Chocolate cardstock
  • 1388 Colonial White cardstock
  • D1407 Piece of Cake stamp set
