Love You

Hello Everyone!!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  We've just returned from our Christmas break, spending time with family and I thought I'd finish the year with a card using some of the December release stamps by JustRite.  Did you know that JustRite are also having a 25% off sale until January 4th??!!  If you were away or simply very busy (like we were!), now's the time to sit back and grab yourself a bargain!!  :)  Nothing like a bit of retail therapy to celebrate the end of the year.  :)

After a week away, I had to find my creative Mojo again and came across the latest CASE Study challenge (CSC122) which can be found HERE!  Such a beautiful inspiration piece!!  :)

I've created the base with Baja Breeze and layered with Black.  Next I took a piece of white card and stamped the Elegant Damask Background stamp in Teal Zeal.  Then I created another layer of black and this time stamped the same background stamp in Summer Sky onto white.  Over these panels I've added a large ZVA pearl flourish and a black ribbon.  Of course I couldn't find a matching ribbon amongst all my masses of ribbon, so I took some white and coloured it with BG57 Copic Marker - YAY, perfect match!!  :)  I've attached this and then added a couple of loops of coloured ribbon as well.  Next I created the rosette out of some card that I found that was the perfect match - I'm not sure what this is, it's Stampin Up, but I have no idea what the colour is.  I've stamped the frame from JustRite's Antique Valentine's Tags One in Teal Zeal and then stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black and cut it out with the matching die from Antique Tags One Dies and attached to the top of the rosette.

Stamps - Elegant Damask Background, Antique Valentine's Tags One (JustRite)
Paper - Baja Breeze, White, Black, Unknown Stampin Up colour
Ink - Memento Teal Zeal, Summer Sky, Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Antique Tags One Dies, Scor Buddy, Black Ribbon, White Ribbon, BG57, ZVA Pearl Flourish, X-press It Clear Gel Glue.

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you all have a wonderful 2013!
