Today is day four of the Papertrey Ink anniversary festivities! The design team has picked out some of their favorite color combinations for you to try. I am loving gray lately with bright colors..

I'm also loving chevron patterns lately, so I decided to use the Background Basics: Chevron stamp set with a few different colors. When paired with hearts, doesn't the chevron remind you of a heart beat?
I decided to put the chevrons up and down instead of sideways. The frame is cut with the Simply Jane die and then stamped the Simply Jane frame stamp with Smokey Shadow ink.


I punched 3 hearts from Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz and Summer Sunrise cardstock. Last, the sentiment is from the Blooming Button Bits stamp set.

You're On My Mind card:
Stamps: Background Basics: Chevron, Simply Jane (frame), Blooming Button Bits (sentiment)
Ink: Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Smokey Shadow, True Black
Paper: Summer Sunrise and white cardstock
Dies: Simply Jane (frame)
Other: heart punch by McGill.

What bright and happy card, I love this color combo, I'll definitely be giving it a try! I just love the new font you're using for your titles (color combos) would you mind sharing the name of it?

Hi Tami, thank you for your nice compliment! Yes, the font is called SNF Lollipop. I am pretty sure I downloaded it for free somewhere. Can't remember where though! :) Thanks for stopping by!
