Bordering on Romance, Enchantment

Bordering on Romance is a set in the current Occasions Mini Catalog.  I almost said "new", but it has been out more than two months; however, this is my first time to post a card using this adorable set.  It is actually part of thw Twitterpated Product Suite but for this card today I used the Everyday Enchantment Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper.  Today's color scheme is for the CCMC Color Challenge 193 over at Create with Connie and Mary and the Sketch #26 Challenge at the Freshly Made Sketches websites.

The CCMC Color Challenge193 is to use Peach Parfait, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party for your card and I used the Freshly Made Sketch #26 for the layout design (I did flip the sketch top to bottom).  I chose the Bordering in Romance large stamp and stamped it in Basic Black onto Confetti Cream cardstock.  I colored it in with our three colors using Blender Pens and ink refills then die cut it with a Heart Framelit.   The card base is Lucky Limeade layered with Pool Party then prints from the Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper added according to the sketch layout.

The Heart was added with Dimensionals.  Inside the card was decorated with another strip of Designer Paper and a stamped row of small flowers from the set.  

The sentiment was stamped with Lucky Limeade using a rather fitting stamp from the set Pursuit of Happiness that I have been looking at for a long time and just recently got.  Pearls from Stampin' Up!'s Basic Pearls embellishments were added to the heart and the upper right hand corner of the card for the finishing touch.

Here is the Color Challenge:
