Hello, Love

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a tic-tac-toe challenge for you.  Just make sure you use items from at least one column, row, or diagonal.
No automatic alt text available.
I really wanted to use every item on the board (kind of a personal challenge) but life has been crazy around our house this week and I was rushing to put my card together in the fastest amount of time possible, so I wasn't able to use water colors or pink.  But I think I did manage to get everything else: Valentine's/love, embossing (heat), red, hearts, vellum, gems and die cuts.
I started by embossing the "Flower Power" background with white embossing powder onto the red card stock.  Then I took a dark red marker and added details to the flowers.  I stamped my sentiment on vellum and a little scrap of white card stock.  I added a couple die cut hearts in red for a subtle embellishment and added a few little gems to the centers of some of the flowers.
If you need any Repeat Impressions stamps (and, of course, you do!) check out my 10% off your total order coupon in my left hand side-bar.  Hop on over to the House blog for the the full details of this week's challenge.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Flower Power Background", "Hello Cling Set" hello and love

Fabulous background Heather. I have the stamps (shh I haven't used them yet)and you have given me reason to do so. Can't go wrong with vellum. Looks super in that big Hello sentiment. Love the tone on tone look.
