Default FEB11VSNMINI1 ~ Fri., Jan. 21st ~ 6:00 pm EST ~ PUNCH YOUR HEART OUT

Title: PUNCH YOUR HEART OUT
Hostess: Theresa (theelopers)
Keyword: FEB11VSNMINI1
Day/Date: Fri., Jan. 21st
Time: 6:00 pm EST

Valentines is a time of the year for music, love and hearts everywhere you look. To me it’s the thought that spring will soon be here. Spring is my favorite season with the renewing of flowers, grass, etc. It’s the season that “makes my heart sing”.

This challenge is four fold:

1. It’s a sketch challenge. You need to follow the sketch (you can change the layout but it must consist of all elements-flower, circle sentiment, punched edging, ribbon).
2. It’s a color challenge; Cherry Cobbler, Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss (May sub with Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz or any non-SU! similar colors.).
3. It’s a punch challenge. You can use any punches to make flowers on your card. (Dies are okay to use for this part of the challenge.)
4. The only stamp on this card is the sentiment.

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY Monday at 8pm EST, 7pm CST.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, FEB11VSNMINI1, when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
4. Please remember that you cannot combine VSN challenges if you wish to be eligible for any recognition, awards, and/or prizes that may be handed out.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your card is seen.

Here are my sketch/sample card:

It should work as soon as there are cards with the proper attribute in the gallery. I'll double check it again in just a few minutes.

My question too!! Usually for color challenges we are encouraged to use what we have that is close.

I am here! Out of all the colors, I only have the Kiwi. (I have tons of SU! colors, but not those!) How about a red and a pink? I have Pixie Pink. For red, I have real red.
Do those work? Looks like fun!

THanks

Yes, basically you are going to keep to the color type.....we all have so many different brands of yummy cardstock!!! So to generalize you would use Pink, Red and Green for this challenge!

I used four circle punches for the layered flower and just offset them.

As a hostess we got a sneak peak at the challenges. As a result I did mine ahead of time. I had so much fun doing this. Can't wait to see what the rest of you come up with.

Looks like you used only solid color for your samples. Are you looking to not use dp in those colors?

You can use dp as long as it doesn't have "extra colors"...
