Todd just got home with the kids - can I get this card posted before they come find me? LOL!
Here's the second card I made for the IC. I guess I kinda strayed... but I really was inspired by the red fabrics when I made my burgundy embossed background with the paisley stamp.
Apart from the embossing - this is a really simple card. One bashful blue die-cut bloom. One Stitched Exotics flower stamped in bravo burgundy on apricot appeal cardstock. I cut a square from apricot paper and added a Short & Sweet sentiment, a little piercing, blue taffeta ribbon, dimensionals, and done!
OK, kids are here so it's lunchtime. I should try again for a monochromatic red card... we'll see!
