Hello Blogging Friends,

Today is the start of the Joy Clair February Challenge.

This month the theme for the Joy Clair February Challenge is Shades of Red and here is the Inspriation Picture:

Here is my card:


White card stock
Pink & Red paper from my stash
Black ink
Victorian Velvet distress ink

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took some Dusty Rose Pink paper and ran it through my Vagabond with the Stampin' Up Falling Petals embossing folder.  I inked the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink and attached that to the card base.  I took some red paper and cut out the largest Memory Box Stitched Heart Layers die.  Then I took some black ink and inked up the the Joy Clair Love Quotes "You Electrify Me" stamp and stamped that in the middle of the red heart and added that to the card.  I took some more red paper and cut out the Quickutz Heartbeat Border die and added that to the card.  The Love Quotes stamp set has so many fun images and sentiments to make fun Valentine's Day cards or just everyday cards.

Hop on over to see all the inspiration from the Joy Clair DT!
