Now and Forever


I guess Christmas is well and truly over since everywhere I look I see hearts and lace and red and pink!  The Paper Players are looking for romantic cards this week and the colours from the new Inkspirational challenge were perfect for my idea.  It's an all Paper Smooches card today!  I heat embossed the chevrons and then paper pieced and layered the rose.  The flower looks a bit red in this picture but I used Stampin' Up's Raspberry Ripple which is a fabulous dark pink (well, to my eye anyway!)  Okay, off to get my day started. Hope your is lovely!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade) Stampin' Up!
Stamps:  (Flower from Pretty Momma, Chevrons from Geo-Graphic, Sentiment from Simply Said) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Ranger
Gems:  (Limeade assortment) Doodlebug
Markers:  (YG23, YG91)
