New Verve and some CRAZY colors!!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! Here is my card for today's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS, WT201, which was to use a website to pick a color combo, and also for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, Mojo69!!

I received my new Verve stamps today (whoo hoo!! And I WON them too...how AWESOME is that?????) and I used the newly released Hundred Hearts set!! I LOVE this Winnie The Pooh quote!!! I went to http://www.colourlovers.com/ to pick out my color combo, and I really wanted to go different, so I chose the Conspicuous Creep color combo!! Crazy!! I took these colors as Taken With Teal, Pink Passion, Certainly Celery, White & Black...and just went with it!!

I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black onto PTI White cardstock, and cut it out with my circle nestabilities. I then stamped the outline heart in both Pink Passion and Certainly Celery around the sentiment. I stamped the hearts in Memento Tuxedo also and first punched them out with a 3/4 Inch Circle Punch, and then layered them with black cardstock I cut with my nesties. I added two coats of Candelight Shimmerz to the solid and the outline hearts, and in real life it really...well, shimmerz!!! The background panels were run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, and I added a little touch of black gingham ribbon!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!!
