Colour Inspiration #45

Hi there,

It's almost Friday!!! I am very much looking forward to the weekend. It's going to be a busy one as usual, but at least I get to spend most of it with the family! Kristina Werner posted her new colour challenge tonight, and I just had to play. I love these colours but I did struggle trying to come up with a design. The card I created has been in my head, in one version or another for some time. It was really difficult to photograph. I also tried using my black embossing powder for the first time. There were many many mistake hearts stamped and embossed because I learnt the hard way that black is not very forgiving. It shows all the mistakes!! The embossing buddy is a MUST when working with black embossing powder!! I took two pictures, one of the card laying down, and one standing up because I wasn't sure how it would turn out in the pics. I also struggled with this one because I wanted to add a sentiment, but wasn't sure that I should. I didn't want to over complicate things, if you know what I mean. Anyhow let me know what you think about the card.
I would love to get some feed back.

Cute! It is very hard using black embossing powder, it gets very messy! Never tried the embossing buddy, I think I heard you could use a drier sheet. Never tried it though.
