Hello Love

There is an adorable hostess stamp set in the Annual Catalogue called Hello Love.  It features little birds, sunshine and clouds raining hearts.  Cute?  Very much so!

I decided to use the stamp set in a swap that I joined and, as luck would have it, it also fit quite nicely with a challenge.  How great is that?  The challenge was for either a sketch or colour or both.  I went for both because it just made me work that much harder and sometimes it's fun to make all the pieces fit just so.

My base cardstock is Naturals White and then there are layers of Early Espresso and Cajun Craze.  There is also a designer piece of Crisp Cantaloupe from the 2013-2015 In-Color stack.  My inks are Early Espresso and Crisp Cantaloupe.  I also added some accents of Old Olive and love the way it makes the circle pop as well as adds some interest to the banners.  As a final detail I added a feather from the A Happy Hooray stamp set which I off-stamped twice before stamping on Whisper White with Cajun Craze ink.

For more cards in the Challenge, check the blog out here.
