Pinks and Reds plus some Browns

I wanted to use the great color combination from Colour Q to create a card so I also went to the retro sketch for my idea.
 The colors are a wonderful combination of pinks with some deep brown. The label shape is cut with the Cricut, I just cut one side of that off to help fit the sketch. That patterned paper is from Authentique.
 The main focus is a great stamp from Hero Arts. What a neat way to say thanks to a friend.
Here is the Colour Q combo.
 
 Here is the retro sketch that I used.
 For this card I also used some "new to me" Hero Arts stamps.
I took the easy way to color the flower, I gave the image a generous spray of some Adirondac Red Pepper spray. The smaller flowers were colored with Copic markers. I just love that notebook paper stamp, I can see that I will use it often. 
                                       
 And for the browns, I used the amazing color combination from Dynamic Duos plus it fits the Simon Says Stamp "anything goes" challenge! I pulled out some more Hero Arts stamps and a great Fluid Chalk stamp pad for the soft background.
 The doily piece is a LifeStyles die cut, the "love you" is cut with the Cricut and the heart is a Hero Arts stamp with matching die cut shape.  The heart makes this fit the Addicted to CAS challenge.

Here is the Dynamic Duos combo.
 
My card also fits the Addicted to CAS challenge to use a heart. Since I love to use a heart somewhere on a card, I had to use this challenge!
 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
