Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 200

Well, you would have to be living under a huge rock if you haven't seen all the amazing entries floating around for the celebrations over at Freshly Made Sketches. Its their 200th challenge and they are having a huge party to celebrate!!

I actually just popped over to their blog to see all the gorgeous entries and the cards made by guests and the DT but got so inspired by the creations, I just had to join in!!

You know how much I love fiddly die-cutting and I loved every fiddly minute of making this one!!

I used the hearts from the 'Funfetti Fri-dies' by CAS-ual Fridays to die-cut my 'line' as in the sketch. I then spent a while die-cutting yellow and pink hearts from my favourite paint chips before inlaying one layer (with a piece of white CS on the inside of the card front) and then putting another layer on top for some height. A simple sentiment in grey (also from CAS-ual Fridays 'Love Notes') and this CAS design was done and dusted!!

The colour inspiration for this card came from the Colour Me Challenge # 85:

Yippee!! One more card to post and then I can go to bed! Sorry for all the posts at once but all of these challenges are due to close in a few hours. I promise all the other cards will be later in the week to give you a breather...

Take care
