Heart2Heart Challenges has partnered with the Double Trouble challenge blog for this first February challenge. The H2H challenge is "All You Need Is Love." Double Trouble challenge #1 is a 3-2-1 challenge: 3 embellishments, 2 patterned papers, and 1 stamped image. Their challenge #2 is to include a little love in the form of hearts. I think my card meets the requirements nicely.
First off, I have to tell you how crazy I am about the adorable Winter Penguins stamp set. I couldn't resist! I am super excited to announce that our older daughter just got notification that she has been accepted into her first choice graduate school, the University of Georgia, so I made this card for her. In case you couldn't tell, their colors are red and black.
I used the Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4 pattern 20 and the Perfect Match collection for the striped piece (patterned paper #1) and the plaid (patterned paper #2). I used the lighter side of my Candy Apple panel to better match the collection and my little penguin. In case you're wondering, her little hat is pink because that's my daughter's favorite color. I used several of my Spectrum Noir markers to color that adorable little critter. I'm counting my penguin as my one stamped image, even though I also stamped the sentiment (from the Jan.-Apr. Craft with Heart cardmaking subscription box). My three embellishments are black shimmer trim (trimmed down to less than 1/4"), black enamel dots, and Thin Cut Heart Shaker Window cardstock pieces.
