Roses and Artichokes

Since the dogs decided to get me up at 3AM this morning, I needed a little project. This card was made by the time my husband got up for work.

I broke out one of the gorgeous Valentine's digis from
PaperFacesDesigns and used a piece of embroidery for the color inspiration. Can you tell I got Copic markers for Christmas?! I'm in love.

I made the shapes and frames in SCAL, including the love border. Although I deviated in the shades, I was working with this week's SPCC's combo of artichoke, soft suede & river rock. The red elements arose from how I colored the roses. The card is 4.5x4.5, and has lots of shimmer!
