Daring choices

Hello.  I do wish it wasn't Sunday night, but what can you do.  The great news is that I had a fabulous weekend.  My family and I went for a hike to Wallace Falls yesterday.  It was quite the hike. Not the longest distance ever, but a lot of up, up, up!  Today, I was able to do some crafting and that was awesome. 

I made this card for the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge that began today.  I was inspired by the mirror in the upper left corner of the picture. I thought I had a stencil similar to that, nope,  i realized I was wrong, so I used this stencil from TCW instead.  I added the color using my Gelatos.  I stamped the I Heart Art set and cut it out.  I put one of the Paper Smooches hearts behind the HE[ART} part of the sentiment.  The paints brushes colored in red to mimic the read heart.  I added some fun ribbon from Simon Says Stamps and some Freckled Fawn red pearls as a finisher.  

I don't think I've ever used red and green together with out it being a Christmas/Holiday card.  It was a daring choice for me, but I think it worked out. 

I hope you have a good Monday!

Your hike sounds wonderful and I'm applauding your stamina! We have a few hikes that I love, but they're not accessible until later in the Spring. My favourites: Lake Louise, up to both tea houses and Takakkaw Falls, where we have a couple of choices, both offering plenty of 'up' then down. Five to six hours! I really need to commit to some exercise! Your daring choices here work wonderfully! Absolutely gorgeous! Gelatos for stenciling..hmmm. May need to explore that technique!
