Colour of Love

Hello, and welcome!

I have some really exciting news.....well, I'm excited about it, anyway...hahaaa!

A few weeks ago, I was invited to become a Design Team member for one of my favourite challenge blogs


Jennipher has a fabulously talented Team and I'm so looking forward to working with, and learning from them.  They've already made me feel right at home......thank you, Ladies!

So....let's get right to the details of the Challenge........it's a very appropriate one for this time of year...heehee.....

PSC65: The Colour of Love
Create a card with a sentiment of love or anything appropriate for Valentine's Day. You must include your sentiment on the front of your card. Use Red and White for your colour scheme to design your card. You may incorporate black or any other neutral tones but your dominant colours must be red and white. 

Nice one, eh?
I like that, as a DT member, I have the flexibility to choose an image from the sponsor, or go with something that fits the theme, from my own stash.

Our Sponsor
will award one lucky random winner 5 free digis of their choice!

I was petrified nervous about making this, my very first DT creation for this wonderful challenge blog......but, here goes........

I used a sweet Tatty Teddy stamp from "Me to You" that came as a freebie with a recent craft magazine.....the papers are from the same mag....and you know how I like my freebies, lol.....
I stamped the image using Archival Ink in black, then did a little colouring with my trusty Promarkers......the white card strip was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and a strip of red grosgrain ribbon was placed along the bottom......

I twisted two lengths of this lovely red ric-rac together to make a little rosette, and added the die-cut leaves....

Have I mentioned that I am a sticker hoarder?  Found this cutie on a very old sticker sheet.....am surprised it was still sticky, hahaa.......

I found the little felt flower in my stash.....I wonder who keeps puttin' all this stuff in there?....can't remember ever havin' seen this before......and topped it with a piece of Card Candi.......

A bit of titivating inside.....and we're done!

I do hope you'll go and take a peek at what my lovely new Team Members have come up with for your inspiration......some serious yumminess, there!

hugs,
Anne-Marie x
