I'm excited to create a card for a (new to me) card challenge:
I had some very pretty wallpaper snippets given to me by a dear friend and the texture and pattern on this background paper grabbed my eye immediately. I backed it with a black cardstock for even more visual impact. I stamped a punched circle with "Love Deeply" a part sentiment from a Penny Black stamps set. I added a scalloped circle die cut from Spellbinders. I punched a heart and cut a double notched ribbon from a fabric type paper. I bumped the heart out using foam tape.
Finishing touch are these three pretty opaque gems from Studio Katia
Sidenote: Its darn cold here today - not compared to the eastern provinces here in Canada, still, cold enough with a brisk wind chill factor happening that I was FORCED to stay inside and craft today ;)
