Sweet Card - Color My Heart Color Dare #85

I am so excited to announce that I was invited to be a guest designer for the Color My Heart Color Dare this week! Here are their challenge colors:

And here is my card:

I knew I wanted to use the Artbooking cartridge to make an overlay for the background. Originally I was going to create a layout, but when I saw the card sketch at Retro Sketches, I knew I had to make this card:

I love using tone-on-tone backgrounds, which really makes that pop of color at the bottom stand out, especially with this design. My favorite part? That I used "sweet" as my sentiment - when mentioned, my card will have to be referred to as the "sweet" card. Sneaky and a bit egocentric? Yes. But effective. :)

Supplies Used (All CTMH, except where noted):
Cardstock: Colonial White, Barn Red, Hollyhock and Olive
B&T Paper: Felicity (retired)
Ink: Cocoa
Stamp Sets: Simple Stitches (retired)
Embellishments: Bling Button (retired) and Embroidery Floss
Tools: Artbooking Cartridge and Border Punch (Stampin' Up)
