Two Hearts One Lifetime

Hooray, got a challenge card done!!! Actually, it goes for two challenges!! First off, this is a case of this card by WeeBeeStampin, this week's Featured Stamper on SCS. I used the colors from the ColourQ Challenge - Rich razzleberry, Orchid opulence, Regal rose and Kiwi kiss. The images are from Verve, Anniversary Birds and Grateful Elegance. I had fun making this card, and believe me, the biggest challenge for me was incorporating the orchid - I simply do not like light purples! I embossed the one layer with my Cuttlebug then sponged white craft ink to tone it down and provide some contrast against the same orchid layer underneath it. I will be putting this in the mail tomorrow for my parent's anniversary. It will probably be late, but that's my style!!!!!!! At least I got one in the mail, I forgot a lot of birthdays and anniversaries last year - shame, shame!!
