MFT Color Challenge #76

Here are the colors for the challenge.  I had to substitute Blu Raspberry for the Tropical Teal but not really a problem.  You only have to get as close as possible to the colors.

Pretty good, I would say.  I used Steel Blue for the card base and the "love" letters.  I got this die free by the way.  I love how the mini scalloped stitched panel makes the perfect frame for the other elements of the card.  I die cut the heart balloons and cut off the straight tail.  I used some silver cord, attaching it to the back of the balloons and letting it hang loose.  Go ahead and ask me, ask me how I got the cord to hang like perfect floating strings.  Here's how.  I lightly coated the cord with some tacky glue that dries clear and twisted it until I was happy with it.  Then I laid one of my acrylic blocks on top to let the glue dry.  

I lightly drew a pencil line where I wanted the bottom of the letters to go and even used my T square to get it all straight.  It bugs me that a couple of the letters are crooked.  Before I adhered the sentiment strip I made sure the cord strings were behind it and fell down through the letters.  As a last touch I added Wink of Stella glitter brush on the balloons and letters.  I think it's a really nice card though and I will be happy to send it out to a special person.
