Heart 2 Heart Challenge - One/First

Happy 2016!  We are geared up here at Heart 2 Heart and ready for a new year of creative challenges.  We love you visiting our blogs and more importantly, enjoy you linking up to the creativity at Heart 2 Heart.

This week's challenge is ONE/First.  Since the FIRST month is beginning, we are asked to use the number 1, the idea of "first" or some other interpretation to kick off the first month of the year.  You have to incorporate Close To My Heart products into your artwork so grab your products and join the fun!

Using the Kaleidoscope paper pack and stamp set that comes in the Workshop on the Go Cardmaking Kit, I made this fun birthday card, with ONE candle.  LOL  I worked to make it a little more masculine - no pinks - and it would be perfect for celebrating a baby's birthday. could be given to a person celebrating their 40th birthday. Who needs 40 candles?!  LOL
The colors of ink used were:  Pear (green), Crystal Blue, Gypsy (purple), Canary (yellow) and Thistle (light purple).  A small piece of Green Shimmer Trim was used as an accent, cut in a dovetail.  Gotta love the look without it taking away from the design.  

Thank you for stopping by and consider linking to the challenge for Heart 2 Heart.  We would love to see what you create!  

Enjoy the first week of 2016 and don't forget to...Make It From Your Heart!
