First Valentine in 2013

I posted on the Rogue Redhead Designs LLC blog today a card made with Midge.  You can learn more about the RRD stamps I used and see my card HERE.


I'll describe my card as part of the listing of the challenges I'm entering:

The Craft Room Challenge:  Valentines
This is my first Valentine for 2013.

The Shabby Tea Room Challenge 148:  Elegance
I chose blue and white as my color scheme based on  Starr's photo inspiration.  She also asked for ribbon and a flower.

Crafts4Eternity Recipe Challenge R106: Moody Blues
I have the different shades of blue in the flowers, ribbon and card stock as well as Midge's hat.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #63 My New Toys and Ribbon
Not only did I try out my new free Midge stamp from the January 2013 issue of Craft Stamper magazine, I also used for the first time my newly purchased  QuicKutz Nestine Doily Hearts dies.

I wove narrow ribbon through the holes in the heart and tied it in a bow at the top.  I also have a filmy ribbon bow in with the flowers and other trims from my stash.  The cotton crocheted ribbon trim is adhered on the back side of the patterned card stock with red line tape.

It's All About the Vintage and Beauty Challenge #34 Lace Dream 
This is a new challenge site for me.  Be sure to check out their blog candy in my sidebar.
