Love and romance

Hello, hello! Not long for the weekend to come. Do you have any plans? I think I will just relax.

In case you haven't found your way to Crafty ribbons challenge blog yet, let me tell you that the theme of our current challenge is Love/romance/anniversary. With Valentine's day fast approaching we thought it would be good to challenge you to make a nice card/project for your sweetie. :) If you are lucky, you could also win this fab prize, that's generously donated by Ali and Tony ...


I have to admit that me and my sweetie don't really celebrate Valentine's day. We both prefer surprising each other on a random days because we feel like it and not just because it's Valentine's day. So love/romance cards are not really something I would make often. But I tried and here's what I came up with ...


As you can see, I kept my card pretty simple. I used patterned red paper from Folia for the background and then added some white cardstock which I embossed with Cottage floral embossing flower over it. In the bottom I used another piece of that red cardstock. I used my border punch to make decorative edge. I also used a 3 mm white grosgrain ribbon from Crafty ribbons. In the upper left corner I glued some heart crystals from my stash. The foam hearts I used on my card are from my stash as well. I raised them on foam dots to add some dimension to the card.

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Card makin' mamas: Clean & simple
Pile it on: Use hearts
Craft us crazy: Valentine's/love and/or use colour red
Bunny Zoe's: Anything goes
Through the craft room door: Anything goes
Whimsical designs: All about love
Pixie dust studio: No squares allowed
Cards galore: Anything goes
The crafter's cafe: Anything goes
Stamp and create: Love

I hope you like my card and that you'll come and play with us.
Hugs! xx
