Welcome to our very first CTMH Heart to Heart Challenge! And happy day-after Easter! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. I am going to have to celebrate Easter today, because yesterday I was in bed with a horrible migraine the ENTIRE day!!! Aghhh. But I am excited to be feeling well today for the unveiling of our color challenge: chocolate, sunflower, and sweet leaf. Today also marks the start of a new challenge at Practical Scrappers: markers.
I colored the stripes of the owl on the left with a sweet leaf marker and paper-pieced the eyes. For the owl on the right, I paper-pieced all the colored parts. To get the bracket-shaped piece of paper on the left of the card, I traced a card base from a Constant Campaign from last year. I forget the name of the campaign (Celebrate?), but it came w/ fun-shaped cards and lots of chocolate embellishments. If you know the name of the campaign feel free to enlighten me :)
Now you can play along, too! If you don't have these exact colors, choose something close. Be sure to use CTMH products - new or retired - and link your blog post to Mr. Linky at Heart2HeartChallenges! There's a great prize this week!
