Floral Thank You:

Good morning all!  I hope you have been enjoying your week so far.  It's hard to believe it's Wednesday again and that we are almost half way through February.

This week's challenge at Papercraft Star is RED:



I just received my new JustRite For All You Do - Samatha Walker stamps in the mail and couldn't wait to use them for this card.  Unfortunately I don't have the corresponding dies (which I *thought* I did) and had to make due with what I had.  I built up a frame with Lattice Pendant Shapeabilities and Labels 3 Nesties.

I also "mixed" up my own shade of red ink.  Nothing seemed to match my paper and ribbon so I used Stampin' Up! Pomegranate, Craftsmart Red, and Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap inks to get this rusty red colour.

Again, I didn't go the traditional way of Valentine's. Much like Halloween, I don't care for Valentine's Day either (*gasp*).  I know, I know.  I like to save my excitement for Christmas :)

This card took me wayyyy too long to make, but in the end I think it was worth it :)
Card Ingredients:  JustRite For All You Do stamps, MME papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Celebrate It ribbon and lace, Wild Orchard flowers, American Crafts twine, Momento metal label, Recollections pearls, as well as what is listed above.  Tools:  Labels 3 Nesties as well as what is listed above.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Stamptacular Sunday - main focus on sentiment, JustRite Friday Challenge - sketch:

Thanks for the visit and I apologize for my long-winded post, apparently I had a lot to say ;)
