Colour challenged!

Ooh, sorry about the dodgy picture!

I made this card for a challenge on In Love With Stamping. It was a colour challenge and I have to admit my heart sank when I saw it: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Chocolate Chip and optional Whisper White or Very Vanilla. Now I like purples and lavenders as much as the next person, probably more, but I never ever find myself using those two shades; I much prefer Perfect Plum or Lavender Lace. And I couldn’t get my head round using Chocolate Chip with them, so tried to keep it to a minimum on this card.

It was dead easy to make though – I took inspiration from a sample in the current Mini catalogue and just punched out nine hearts from some Tea Party Designer Series Paper (which just happens to be Almost Amethyst).
