The Kraft Journal 107 - Seeing Red

Happy Monday Morning Sweet Blog Friends! 
It's a new challenge at The Kraft Journal!!! "Seeing Red" I started with a base of Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock onto which I layered a piece of red patterned paper from GCI Studios.  Next, I added a patterned paper heart border to the bottom of my card base using the same coordinating paper pad. A doily was dyed with some red distressed inks adding some patterned paper to the center. A Town Square Journaling Card by Jenni Bowlin was adhered to the base adding a sweet Vintage Valentine image from my stash to the center of the frame. 

A fussy seam binding bow was created and embellished with a button, Natural Hemp Cord and two Garnet stick pins .  To complete this very red Valentine card, a Paper Sweeties sentiment With Love was stamped using a Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Flag paired with a coordinating Flag Banner Sticker
