Red, White and Pink

I'm a little late, but I have the 
MONDAY MORNING CHALLENGE
to share from Bella Blvd!

Our challenge was to use the conventional Valentine colors of 
red, white and pink for an everyday project.
The best part about cardmaking is that "I Love You's" can be
given anytime of the year, so I kept with that theme in mind :)

Because Bella Blvd papers are full of fun chevron patterns, this card can be recreated
 with any theme in mind! I highlighted the lighter area with strips of Designer Tape 
and then embellished the front simply with layers of Crochet Hearts and a couple of 
chipboard stickers. I hesitated adding the green leaves, but I really love the extra
 color that it brings to an all-ready colorful card!

Supplies: Play Date: Tabs; Daily Chevies: Chevy Peep; Ciao Chip Elements: Stars & Hearts, 
Trees; Crochet Hearts: McIntosh, White; Designer Tape: Red Dot

 I love combining different elements from different collections and watch the design evolve! 
From the heart die-cut, I cut the sentiment "love you more" from it and then covered the area
 with a strip of the Borders paper. I then layered on the sentiment and added a couple of
 hand-cut flowers and leaves from the Molly paper. I gave the leaves some color with a
 brush marker before attaching. I wanted to give the die-cut heart a little extra 'frill', 
so I used one of the scalloped heart dies (by Spellbinders) and mounted the heart onto it.

Supplies: Play Date: Catching Bugs; Family Forever: Borders; Molly: Sketch With Style; 
Snapshots: Paper Pieces; Christmas Countdown: Captions, Tabs

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
