Crazy 4 Challenges 73

Good afternoon all!

I`ve found another new to me challenge blog, Crazy 4 challenges.They are asking us for Valentines cards. Now this is quite fortunate as my son is here today for the footy and asked me to make a card for him to give to his fiance.
Here is my card,
Apologies for the photo, it`s pouring with rain here and the sky is a very dark, threatening grey.

Rachel my future DIL, isn`t a pastelly sort of girl, she loves bold bright colours so I`ve gone with a rich deep red. She also doesn`t do too fussy so I`ve kept it quite simple ( for me ).
I`ve used the Swirls cuttlebug folder on white card and matted that onto some dark red card.
The stamps are from Elusive Images With Love stamp set, stamped in clear ink onto dark red card and embossed in white EP.
I used the Spellbinders Classic lace die again with dark red card.
I punched out some leaves and added a dark red rose.
The sentiment is Flourishes Tag Lines stamped in clear ink and embossed with Moon Glow EP in Razzleberry/ Plum.

Not a lot to tell you today so I`ll get off and I might fit another card in before tea.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Beautiful card Lynne and how lovely that your son asked you to make it. The hearts are gorgeous and the red rose just finishes it off nicely. Rachel is going to love it. xx

  2. So pretty-love the swirly hearts. Tea sounds wonderful on this snowy day here in Missouri-off to brew a cup!

  3. I like the way the dark red pops against the textured white card stock and the hearts look as if they're frosted!

  4. Me again Lynne. Pop over to my blog, I've got something for you xx

  5. Oh my goodness! Is this ever gorgeous!! Love the dark colors with the white. The embossing is fantastic.


Please leave a comment, it just makes me feel good :)
