Kraftin' Kimmie's Colour Challenge

This week, the fabulous Kraftin' Kimmie herself is hostess of the weekly challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog. Kimmie wants to see a combination of Pink, Red and Chocolate on your projects this week. You also have the option of including hearts on your your design paper, cut from a punch, brads, chipboard....whatever you want!! With Valentine's Day sneaking up on us so quickly, this challenge will help bring out your inner Cupid! Remember the new MUST use a Kraftin' Kimmie image to be elligible for the prize!!

My card this week features "Tree Fairy", one of the new January Release images. I did alter her a bit though...I took her off her branch and perched her on these scalloped hearts cut out with some Nesties (which I borrowed from my friend Amy...thanks a bunch Amy!!). She was stamped on Neenah Cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. Her wings were coated with Frosted Lace Stickles. I loosely followed the sketch from Papertake Weekly...which is being sponsored this week by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! (Actually, so is Pink Elephant where the challenge is birthday cards. Why not triple your chances to win some Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, and enter all three challenges!)

So, what are you waiting for?? Need some inspiration? You can go over to the Challenge Blog where you will find details on the prize and examples by the Krafty Girls (and links to their blogs) to get your mojo going.

Looking forward to seeing what you create!
