Falling for you...


The challenge for this Friday was "falling for you." Another one of those challenges that is open for interpretation if you ask me. I did a 'fall' card recently and wasn't really in the mood for those colors today so,....I went for a love type of card. Hope this works!
My background paper isn't background paper at all! I used my A Rose is a Rose stamp set and made my own paper. Love it! The colors are Riding hood red, regal rose, kiwi kiss and artichoke. This rose set is really easy to line up. I have had some in the past that were a bear! This one is totally easy. I stamped randomly all over my paper and then cut it up to use for different projects. The card base is riding hood red with a strip of Bella Rose DSP and Kiwi Kiss cardstock on it. I used the papier piercer to do the faux stitching and then added some bigger holes by using the piercer without the guide. The ribbon is the new riding hood red taffeta....yummy!
I'm sure the other BC girls will have lots of different takes on this challenge so be sure to check them out. :o))

This is really beautiful Beckie. These colors together looks stunning (you and I must have been on the same color kick...or close to it). Such lovely design elements and layout. Fabulous all the way around.
