Color Challenge.Sample......

Recently I participated in a color challenge.  We were given this pictures (below) to inspire our sample.  I love the colors and Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso and Whisper White are the colors I decided to use.
Here is my card I made for my challenge partner.  The card is Espresso, layered with Turquoise that I ran through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  I used a strip of striped Tempting Turquoise from the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper Pack to go down the card.  I put Espresso behind that, which I had punched using my Scallop Trim Border for edging. 

How do you like my "kiss" cholocate?  I realized a few months ago that the largest petal on the Blossom Petal Builder Punch would make a delightful "Hershey's Kiss" and have been saving it to use for Valentines! 
Well, this challenge pictures just begged me to use it now.  I put tiny pearls from the Jewels pack all over the kiss.  The "I love you" sentiment is from Three Little Words stamp set.  The sentiment "Sweets for the Sweet" is from the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set.
I used the Designer Frames oval embossing folder as a backing for the "kiss."

The "sweets for the sweet" sentiment is punched from the 1-1/4" circle punch, layered onto a turquoise Scallop Oval and that is layered onto a Wide Oval of Espresso.

I hope my swap partner liked this card!! I had fun making it!!
Smiles, Laura
