Hello, everyone! It's time for this week's Timeless Tuesday challenge!
Cindy is our hostess and she's asked us to use 4 brads/pearls, a circle, and a fishtail banner in our creations. At first I thought this may be a little difficult to incorporate all these items into one project. But then I spotted the Cardabilities sketch #67 for this week:
Awesome! I had a plan!!
I used both a classic circle and lacey circle Nestabilities to cut out the chocolate layer. I embossed just the classic circle and then taped it back into the lacey circle. The card base and the fishtail banner with "You" on it are both made from Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock. I stamped the "are loved" portion of the sentiment in both Memento Rich Cocoa and Desert Sand colors to give it a little shadowed effect.
I didn't have the perfect pink ribbon match for the rose so I pulled out some eggshell seam binding and colored it with my R83 Copic from the Lenten Rose Collection. I added some more fishtail banners from my patterned paper and a "swish" of pearls to finish the design. I'm rather pleased with how it turned out!
I hope you'll decide to play along with us this week! Don't you need another Valentine card too??
