I'm still lovin' the Bittersweet papers from Basic Grey and this particular pattern is one of my favs! Aren't the colors just yummy!
I have to admit that I worked really hard on this card. I started it yesterday afternoon and didn't finish it until about 10:30 last night. I really had to ponder the different elements! LOL!!! And even after all of that pondering, I think the card still came out really simple looking. Oh-well, I still like the card a lot.
The base of this card is Close to Cocoa that I inked up with some Basic Black ink. I then layered the dp onto a piece of Rose Red that I embossed with my Cuttlebug. After I attached the dp I layered both pieces onto Basic Black cardstock. I also inked up the Rose Red paper with some Close ot Cocoa and Whisper White ink to bring out the embossed design. I stamped my sentiment (from SU!'s Love Matters) onto the Close to Cocoa cardstock using black ink and then I used the word window punch to punch out the opening on the layered cardstock. I then attached the layerd cardstock onto the Close to Cocoa base using dimensionals. I layered pink and Close to Cocoa ribbon across the card and finished it out with a Basic Grey brad and a felt flower from American Crafts.
Then.... I decided that the card needed a little extra flare. I went through my jewelry making beads and found this great assortment of pinks and browns. I strung these seed beads onto some stiff jewelry wire and laid it on top of the ribbon. Ta-da!!! My finished card :)
Hope you are enjoying the start of the weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
