Hugs and Kisses

It's time for another challenge at ATCAS, and you know that love is in the air this time of the year! What a fitting code word for the week. :)
We are joined once again by Julia as our Guest Designer. Make sure to check out her amazing blog. She has some really cool and detailed techniques on there this week, along with a fabulous CAS card for this week's challenge!  She is one talented woman, that is for sure!

I found a gorgeous color combination at colourQ that is perfect for this challenge.

I never would have thought to put those colors together, so I was happy for this inspiration!  This is also a fitting code word for the Love/Valentine challenge going on at Stampin' Royalty. :)  Here is what I came up with in a very short amount of time, my favorite thing about CAS cards!

I just got this heart stamp in my January My Paper Pumpkin kit and it was the perfect addition to my Work of Art splotches. Believe it or not, I did not have ANY heart stamps until I got this one!! Perfect timing, don't you think? :)

Thanks for stopping by to visit today!  Make sure to visit the rest of the design team and their awesome Hugs and Kisses creations.
