15th of the month post for TCCC blog with a February theme of pink or red

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity! The Crafter's Café Challenge Blog has challenge release dates on the 1st and 15th of each month, so this is February's mid-month that I'm referring to. The theme is based on color pink or red.

For Valentine's celebrated inspiration card, I've used a variety of pinks--soft pale pink for the cardstock base to the deep magentas seen in the patterned paper and hearts. There are mauve pink-lavenders used to color the digi image, patterned papers, and alpha stickers for "Luv".

Isn't this image cute and sweet??!!! I love this mix of pastels and bolds with how I colored the digi to coordinate with most of the patterned papers--so charming!

Sponsors for this TCCC connected post are: My Besties and QKR Stampede (which is the provider for this darling image).
