Cranberry Sauce...Love You

Hi ya!

{Honored that this Made Top 3 at Little Scrap Pieces on 2/16/13}

I am popping on quickly to share a card inspired by the Waltzingmouse Stamps Cranberry Sauce Color Challenge and it was a bit of a challenge. I was smitten with the colors, but boy it was tough working them together just so. The inspiration photo is just gorgeous! 

Here is what my take! 
I used Waltzingmouse Seasons of Love Tags set. It is very much Loved by me! It's one of my WMS favorites and I seem to gravitate towards it first. 

The plum patterned paper was actually leftover from my recent "Dreaded Man Card" and I still had it out on my desk. 

I created a fussy seam binding bow and added a raspberry button to the center using some black twine. For an added touch, two heart stick pins were added to the bow. 
A layer of raspberry crochet trim was placed over a length of black lace trim in the middle of the card face where the patterned paper meet. 

As mentioned, I found inspiration with the current Waltzingmouse Color Challenge.

The lacy trim underneath goes great with the lovely die cut border to match! Makes me sad that Valentine's Day is over because I will miss these pretty and romantic heart cards in blogland!
