Dawn McVey's Color Challenge # 11



It's Dawn McVey's (dawnmcvey.typepad.com) 11th challenge but it's my first time participating. I loved the colors in the challenge so I couldn't help myself. In doing this challenge, I learned a lot about my new eyelet border punch. It took me quite some time to figure out how to use it properly. After punching out the black strip with the border punch, I thought it looked a little naked so I added some bright pink stitching. I then stamped "love" and then cut out the heart. I lined the heart with some light gray ribbon and then adhered some green ribbon behind that.
