Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #50 - Summer Starfruit Heart card

Summer Starfruit #2

At Addicted to CAS this week, the challenge theme is 'texture'. I have had this glittery heart sitting in my stash for ages and I just haven't brought myself to use it or throw it away. It is a little bit 3-D....it feels almost quilted so you just want to touch it. 

At Fusion this week, they have a cool sketch plus an inspiration photo that features red polka dots which I thought I would use. I flipped the sketch on this card as the panel looked better (after much playing around) going vertical rather than horizontal. 

My Color Coach Journey dictates that I use Summer Starfruit with Real Red & Marina Mist ....totally weird colours....but I think the presence of the heart & the polka dots really helps with the balance. 

No sentiment on this one, but I really don't think it needs one. :)

Hope you like it!

Don't forget that Summer Starfruit card stock, Real Red Polka Dot Parade DSP and the Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon are all on the retired list and won't be available after 30 June (or earlier if they sell out)....don't delay your order. Visit my online store today.
