Love Birds

This is for Market Street challenge. Everything on this card is from the January kit. I noticed that the embossing didn't take in one corner but am going with it. I will try to do better next time. I am still sick with a bug so this was my first time to craft in a while. The layout is from CardPatterns.

Ribbon Carousel Challenge 37

Welcome to Non Traditional Colors challenge with Ribbon Carousel Challenge. This means if you make a Christmas card no greens or reds or a Valentines card no pinks or reds. Our wonderful sponsor is Paper and Such.

I created a Valentine card that has Kody Rocks from Some Odd Girl. I colored him with Prismas. Blue Ruche frames the image. The Mushroom brown Bag and Abysee Sparkle were embossed than sanded and inked. Sulphar Blue Seam Binding was added. I just love how easy the seam binding is to work with. I roughed up the edges of the ribbon a bit to go with the rocker image. The papers can be found at Paper Temptress.


The sketch is from Stamp School. I took a bit of liberty by changing shapes but basically the sketch is there. The image is from Greeting Farm called 50's sweethearts.

Love Birds

The stamp is from the Market Street Stamp January kit. I used Basic Grey Lemonade for the DSP. The flower is from MSS kit. The lace is from my stash that was sprayed with different Tattered Angel Sprays. I just love changing the look of lace that way.
