Happy Birthday Hearts Label for Embellish Labels Colour Challenge

Waltzingmouse Stamps are sponsoring the Embellish Labels Colour Challenge. The challenge is to use yellow, brown and coral and to incorporate a label into your project. I love pink but I rarely use coral, it's definitely not one of my go to colours! I really liked this colour combo though and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.

The card is an A6 sized textured white card blank. My label was stamped with an image from WMS Very Vintage Labels No. 4 set and die cut with Labels Four Nestie dies. The sentiment with that gorgeous font is from the WMS Say It With Style set and I added 2 small hearts which are from the WMS Sewing Box Christmas set. I added Plaid Dimensional Magic to both hearts so they're glossy and raised. I had a moment of panic when my cat Tingha decided to jump up to the exact spot where I'd left them to dry - thankfully, he narrowly missed them. The prospect of removing gloopy stuff from cat fur didn't appeal!

I used my fave new Dotted Wave punch on the Choc Chip CS and finally got round to using my elegant decorative corner die that I've had for a couple of months. This is another card to be donated to the Craft for Life campaign to support Cancer Research UK. Please read this post if you'd like more details of the Craft for Life campaign.
