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
