CSS Alumni Color Challenge Hop

Welcome to another CSS Alumni Color Challenge Hop. This time we are using the current Spotlight Color Challenge over at StampTV. Since Gina kind of made a little oops and used the wrong color combo in her video, the card I am sharing contains the other color combo option.

If you are hopping along by starting at StampTV then you should have just been inspired by Melissa Cash. If not, then you will want to start at StampTV and hop through the entire group's blog posts to be completely inspired for a weekend of stamping.

Here are the colors for the color challenge card I made

and here is my card

I've been in the Valentine's Day/Love mood lately. So I pulled two older fun sets, Heartily Yours and Heartily Yours Additions to make this card.

Next on the hopping list is Miesje Flach. I know you will be completely inspired at your next stop. After you finish the hop please make sure to create something for the color challenge and upload it to StampTV. A FREE stamp set is given away to a random participant for each challenge over at StampTV.
