HIMCR Challenge # 144 ~ Black & White + 1

Hello my crafting friends. I hope you are getting a great start to the weekend.  It's Saturday and that means another challenge at HIMCR.  But today is a special Saturday as we welcome the newest members to our Design Team.  I know it's going to be loads of fun working with and getting to know them.  Visiting their blogs will be a treat as they share their projects with you.  I will post a list of our design team at the end of this post for your convenience. Do take a few minutes to welcome our new members and leave them some of your encouraging bloggie love :-)
Our challenge this week is a colour challenge. You have to use the colours Black and White plus one more colour and that can be of your choice. Fun, don't you think?

Our sponsor this week is Blue Moon Creations. They have amazing digi stamps, so go take a look if you want to add to your digi collection.

For my card I used their heart with love words digi. I made this card for my daughter's wedding anniversary.
As you can see the heart with love words already has the word Love in pink so I decided to go with Black & White and use Pink as my + 1 colour.  I resized my image so that I could cut it out with the Memory Box Cupid Heart. I took some pink cardstock and traced the die on it and hand cut around it in order to get the pink mat on the heart.  I used my EK Success punch to cut the corners to slot in the white mat.  Added a heart pin and some little pink roses, some ribbon and pearls and voila, it was done :-)
 For the inside, I used the same pink and black cardstocks as I used in the front. I cut the heart flourish with the Heart Flourish Die, also from Memory Box.  I only used a section of this die  in order to make it fit on my card.  I cut it again in pink and used the hearts to fill in blank heart spaces. Used a tiny heart from a tiny punch and placed it as a dot over the "i" in Anniversary.

I would love for you to join in the fun of our challenge.  You have until Saturday to link your project to HIMCR Challenge # 144.  The prize this week is a digi image from our sponsor, Blue Moon Creations.
