Red, White, Black with Texture for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the

with the theme this week chosen by the very talented Jane, which is

Red, White, Black and Texture

we are sponsored this week by Digi Doodles

who are offering a $10 gift voucher

So here is my design team inspirational piece but don't forget to hop on over to the challenge site to view the rest of the gorgeous creations
I made an 8 x 8 inch Valentine card for my dearest hubby Matt.  The base layer is a burgundy pearlescent paper and this is also the contrast.  The papers are Kaiser.  The large heart is a Go Kreate cut onto black card.  the heart has been totally covered with little burgundy roses along with some beady frond things all from the local department store.  The edge of the heart has been edged with lace from the same location.  The return has a run of MS punched hearts with contrasting papers (negatives of the main paper) and the sentiment which is My Sentiments Exactly is on a plate of the normal nestie and it's scallop partner.  The ribbon of burgundy roses and the ribbon and bow is also from the local craft shop.

Here is the close up of the return

The close up of the front and those lovely little roses

My laptop had to go to a repair man on thursday. It was one month after my guarantee expired!! Just unbelievable!!! I can not believe I missed so many fantastically gorgeous cards you shared. Love them all.

Misty's said...

Yeah, laptop is working but still have to load up lots of programmes and configure it all how I had it before. Fingers crossed! Healthwise I am not better... thanks for asking. Tomorrow I have got one of my hospital appointments at 3.30pm so I am extremely nervous already.
