Inspiration of Love and Pink & Reds

Verve is having a Vivacious Valentine Inspiration Challenge for February which I couldn't resist and I thought to get one more card in for the JUGS#279 and Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge of Red and Pink's.

Here is my card:
Here I decided to make a square card for a change and started with my Blueprints# 14 and wanted to try out one of the four sketches you can download to give you ideas. I pulled out the stamp set Dream Big by Verve since I wanted to incorporate some flowers which I think goes perfect with hearts.

I layered the flowers using foam mount in between to pop them up using Wild Cherry and Bubblegum ink and for the leaves, I used Jellybean Green along with matching dies to cut them out. 

As you can see I used the papers from the SS kit again from Crate Paper called Kiss Kiss. Sentiment is also from the same stamp set: Dream Big and hard to tell in the photo but used White shimmer paper to add a little sparkle to this card. 

Again, don't forget to check out the challenge sites if you haven't already to see lots of creativity and inspiration.

Supplies Used: 
Stamp Set: Dream Big (Verve),
Cardstock: White, Lipstick Red, Kahki,(SS), Pearl White Shimmering card stock (Crafter's Companion)
Paper: Kiss Kiss (Crate Paper)
Inks: Black (Hero Arts), Wild Cherry, Bubblegum, Jellybean Green (MFT)
Accessories: Blueprints 14 (MFT), Scalloped Flowers (A Cut Above by Verve), Coffee Die (little heart) (MFT), Foam Mount
