Red,Kraft & Brown

Red,Kraft & Brown,what a wonderful colour combination,that's what CR84FN Colour Challenge have come up with this week and such a gorgeous inspiration board.


The colours just said love to me so I did a romantic feel card with the Eiffel Tower and red roses.


All supplies are from Stampin'Up,I used the Love Letter DP and inked the edges with Crumb Cake and Choc Chip then did some stitching. I die cut the kraft doily with Nellie's Multi Frames and inked the edges,I used the masking techninique,so I stamped the Eiffel Tower from Artistic Etchings set onto scrap paper and cut it out close to the edge. I placed the cut out Eiffel Tower onto the doily and with the En Francais background stamp I stamped onto the doily,when I took the scrap stamped image away I had a blank space to stamp the Eiffel Tower in Choc Chip and the text fitted nicely around it.
The roses were made using the Scallop Border Punch,if you take a 16cm long piece of card and punch all the way along,cut it to 1/2 cm wide and just wind into a circle making a flower shape adhere the end with a dot of glue. I added some pearls,stamped the ARMOUR also from Artistic Etchings and then attached the hardware frame over the stamped image.

Thanks for looking

This card makes me think of romance, nostalgia history and of course Paris:) Famous as the city of love and this is a gorgeous tribute to that gorgeous city. You've captured the feeling of romance in a perfect way. I love the "lace"look of the borders. Fabulous!
