Go Big or Go Home!!

LOL!! How's that for a post title? Inspired by the Olympics and this birthday card's Big and Bold stamp!! When I saw the colours for the Embellish birthday colour challenge, all that popped into my head was this PTI raspberry fizz paper and blue buttons. It evolved into this card. Played around with the sentiment...not sure I like it on white, but none of the other challenge colours worked better so I layered it onto brown so it would stand out from the white card base.

Just something fun to show you from tonight's Valentine's dinner :) We went out to a great restaurant last night so tonight I made a special "Two Hearts" salad for a quiet dinner at home. The two hearts come from roasted beets cut into hearts with a cookie cutter and hearts of palm pieces. How adorable is this? It was very yummy too :) I found the easy recipe in the Canadian Living magazine that I found at the gym. I hope your day was filled with love...whatever form it may come in...family, friends, pets, faith, hobby, peace, self-love.

What's in it?
Stamps: PTI big and bold wishes
Ink: SU ballet blue, choc chip
Paper: PTI white, raspberry fizz dp; SU choc chip, wasabi
Accessories: SU scallop border and corner rounder punches; stitching, buttons, satin ribbon, gemstones

What a yummy looking salad! I'd like the recipe. Love the card! You did a wonderful job with the colour challenge. I think the sentiment looks great on the white. I like that crisp look!

Love the bold colours on the card The row of buttons is too cute and the splash of green is a great touch. Well done :D
