Colour Create - Hearts

Hello everyone. Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday but I was completely rushed off my feet making rosettes and decorating a wooden spoon. I have a fun day coming up tomorrow with work and they wanted winners and losers rosettes in the team colours. They took forever to make!

Anyway, today it's another Colour Create Challenge and we're sponsored this time by who have put together a wonderful summer selection bag of ribbons for one lucky winner.

The talented Dena picked the colours and theme for us this week and she chose this picture for inspiration:
and the colours are Pink, Orange and Green with the optional extra of Hearts.
There was one image that immediately sprang to my mind when I saw the optional extra....yep, good old Tilda to the rescue again!

I'm sorry I forgot to take a picture of the inside again.
I've used my lovely heart Martha Stuart Punch again. I spent an age hand sewing and distressing this card with a combination of Tattered Rose, Spiced Marmalade and Pine Needles distress inks.

Hope you like it. The DT cards on the challenge blog are wonderful this week - all so very different from each other. Do have a look, and I hope you can find time to join us again.
