Blooming Love Card

Hello! I hope you're having a fantastic day. Mine has been pretty good. I was sitting by myself at lunch and was approached by a lady who needed a hair model for a training class. I was brave enough to participate. She washed, trimmed and styled my hair for free. Plus she gave me a scalp and neck massage. I guess I was in the right place at the right time and it turned out terrific. It really made my day!

Onto my card.... this Blooming Love Card was made using the colors in the Sunday Stamps challenge. The colors are Black, Fuchsia and Red. The closest color I have to Fuchsia is Melon Mambo, so that's what I used. I went with a really simple layout and used a fun black and white patterned paper by Recollections. The sentiment stamp is by Print Works and the pansy flower was stamped using the Flower Shop stamp set by Stampin' Up!. I layered the punched pansy with a real red punched blossom flower and used a black glitter brad in the center. Feeling I needed a little more of a glam look, I added the strip of black glitter tape by Recollections. The corners of the white card stock were punched using the scroll corner punch by Fiskars and I punched a couple of pieces of Melon Mambo and inlayed them into the punched white card stock. (I hope that makes sense!) This card could be used for an anniversary or wedding and it was pretty easy to make. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
