Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge - Nontraditional Valentine Colors

Happy Saturday!

Our challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow this week is to make a Valentine card using nontraditional colors (no red or pink).


Stamps:  Vintage Violet Label, Valentine Tags
Paper: K&Co
Ink: Copics
Accessories:Spellbinders Labels 4, Flowers, Pearls, Branch Punch, lace, ribbon


I wanted to carry the background flourish into the image. I used a similar color, shiny mat to tie them together.


I used my Copics Airbrush Systemto add some blue to my purple flower.


I took a two different Valentine Tags and layered them to make this fun sentiment.

Check out the design team blogs (listed on my sidebar). You will love their work!

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!

Julie, Julie! This is beautiful - the colors are gorgeous ...
the design work is really nice and I love all the embellishments you have used. I love that blue ribbon across the page - did you add those little pearls? Really quite creative. February is Valentine month and you have given us the flower for February - a violet! The background paper is beautiful!!
