AAAChallenge 257

I madee this card for the AAA Challenge #257 for this challenge:

I used a stencil from A Colorful Life, red distress ink for the stenciling, and a Valentine embossing folder from Sizzix. A puffy red heart sticker is my embellishment. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Idea-o-logy strip.  I added this to a red card base. It was one quick and easy CAS Valentine.

Christmas Craft Creations - Glitter and sparkle

I used some light colored distress oxide ink for my stenciling using my newest purchase from A Colorful Life. I used some texturing paste also with parts of the stenciling to add texture and then add gold leaf to the wet paste. The sentiment and deer are die cuts of white papers I added a few sparkly sequins on the card as added sparkle for this card. 

The details of the challenge can be found here as well as the linky:

Color Throw Down Challenge - Navy, red, pink

I am in the midst of Valentine making so I thought these colors were grand for this stylistic card design were I used a navy mini ink pad to stamp my little squares directly from the pad, add aa pink heart with a sentiment stamped on it with red puffy heart stickers used as embellishments. The sentiment was the only stamp I used.
