Another color challenge

Here is another entry for the Stampin' Royalty color challenge for the week.

I really loved the I {Heart} Hearts set when I first saw it. I just had to have it. I got it. It sat there. And sat there. And sat there. I finally opened it and put the stickers on the back of the stamps when I worked on this challenge.

This is a modification of the other card I did for this challenge. I started with a Very Vanilla base. Then I used a 3/4" strip of the Not Quite Navy and a small strip of the Cherry Cobbler. I would guess about an 1/8 of an inch is showing. Then I stamped the dotted heart outline in Old Olive in the middle. For the rest of the hearts, I stamped them in either Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, or Daffodil Delight on Very Vanilla scraps and cut them out. I popped up the smallest hearts (one of each color!), the olive wood-grained heart, and the daffodil dotted heart. The sentiment in the middle is from the Whimsical Words set.

After I was done, I thought, "well, I could have embossed the navy strips on the top and the bottom," but they were attached, and I was happy with my card. That's really what counts, right?
