Eclectic Ellapu February: Burgundy / Red & Cream / Ivory

Hello, friends! We have a brand new year of challenges starting over at  Eclectic Ellapu. Our DT family has grown and that means MORE crafty inspiration for you.

As always the 2 teams - Pinks and Purples - are playing together, but they have own themes. The Pinkies are colouring with "Burgundy / Red AND Cream / Ivory" and the Purplies are playing with "Hearts & Roses".

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I couldn't help but make this love-themed card with Burgundy and Cream. The hot-air balloons are from a discontinued stamp set by Clearly Besotted called "Up and Away". Such a pity because it truly was a lovely set and that heart shaped hot air balloon is the cutest! The little hearts are also Clearly Besotted, this time from the Good Times stamp set. These little guys make lovely clouds!


I cut a heart shaped window with an X-Cut die. The hot air balloons are cut with coordinating dies by Clearly Besotted.

Challenges:
Addicted To CAS #56: Codeword "Hugs & Kisses"
Inspirational #75: Rose Colours
Suzy Bee's Blooming Challenge #65: AG with Twist - Stitching
Sweet Stampin' Challenge: Love
Simply Create Too #78: Valentine's Day / Use Hearts



Products used to make this card:




Now it's your turn to create and link up your labour of love over at the Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Blog. Remember, we have 2 concurrent challenges: "Burgundy / Red AND Cream / Ivory" for the Pink Team and "Hearts and Roses" for the Purple Team. You can enter one or both challenges as many times as you wish, but make sure you link up your projects by 11:59pm GMT on 28 February 2015.

Thank you for stopping by today. Looks like it going to be a sunny day. We're taking the dogs for a walk on the beach. I hope you've got a fun day planned. Have a beautiful Sunday, friends!

Beijinhos!
