Love for Lindsay

I made this quilt-like card for several challenges. Betty and Cindy are combining the Color and Teapot Tuesday challenges today.  Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday challenge can be seen here for the full story. Betty's color challenge is to use Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and Melon Mambo (Pink Passion), and Jen's CAS challenge from yesterday to layer two different shapes (mine are octagons and hearts). Most importantly, I made this card for Lindsay. You can read about Lindsay's story in the Love for Lindsay thread on Splitcoast.



I stamped, cut, and layered three of the hearts. I don't have Pink Passion dp, so I used some of my background stamps for those two panels. I also used my ScorPal to score the background for a quilt-like effect.

Thanks for looking and won't you consider playing today and sending Lindsay some much needed love and encouragement?

Wow, Charlene, I read this challenge and never thought of adding black. It really does help balance the brightness of the pink against the softer shades of blue and celery. Your interpretation is perfect for all aspects of today's challenge and I'm sure Lindsey will love it.

This is so awesome! I can't wait until Lindsay gets this one. Carla said she got 9 cards already and that's not counting what she is getting today probably. This card is wonderful, thanks for thinking of Lindsay!
