Happy Anniversary

Well one of my favorite finds from PTI was Becky's compose a card challenge that she has started. I really like challenges and I adored her freebee graphic that hopefully is an indication of what we might be in store for with her line as well, so this was fun all around on her blog. Here was her challenge. So you have to keep the measurements the same and use the colors mentioned. Since I was a slacker, I was able to combine it with the fun CPS sketch as well.
Here is my card
I hand punched the small hearts and then glued them on individually so that the fun color pattern was created. Here is a close up of the hearts
I didn't think I was going to like the colors together at all. They are not my normal by any strech of the imigination, but I think it worked out really nicely. This card works for the Finally Friday challenge as well, which was to use pastels.
This card is going to my Aunt and Uncle for their anniversary. I am sure it will brighten their gloomy IL day.
It's a good life!
