Romantic Collage

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It's time to start taking down the Christmas decorations. It really doesn't seem like I have had them up for very long but it's been a month. Oh well off to the attic until next year.

My card for today is one that I made for the color challenge #408 on Splitcoaststampers. Julia is our hostess and she chose a great trio of colors for us to work into a card - raspberry ripple, very vanilla and sof t suede.

I have been wanting to use this Romantic Collage H147  stamp from Great Impressions Stamps. I thought it would work well with today's colors.

The image  is stamped in Versamark and raspberry ripple ink then I clear embossed. My sentiment is from PTI stamps -lock and key. I also used the matching key die as well.

I sponged the image panel with a bit of soft suede ink and then used the Stampin-Up color spritzer with soft suede to distress my background.

Julia also wanted us to make a floral card so I used the Tim Holtz mini rosette die and cut in raspberry ripple.  Added some May Arts crochet ribbon and Stampin-Up raspberry ripple ribbon.

Well that's it for me today. Off to my Christmas decorations. So until next time........God bless.
