You are loved

The colour scheme of todays cards was inspired by a challenge I wanted to participate in, but sadly the linky had already closed by the time I had finished my card. It's not the first time that has happened to me, and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last time either.

I started with testing my tone on tone stamping on a smaller scrap to see if I liked it, which I did, so I decided to create this strip into a card as well, and then I went on to stamp the larger panel in simplar fashion, using one of the blooms from the Wild hibiscus stamp set by Altenew. The sentiment and heart are from the You are enough set by Concord & 9th. I adhered my panel to a card base out of soft grey cardstock.

Below is the first stamped strip, which I adhered onto a card base of Rustic cream cardstock by PTI.

And here they are together:

I'm entering my first card into the following challenges:

Tic Tac Toe - #12, I went with the bottom horizonal row
