Just Believe Just For You Card - Simply Stampin' Challenge #46

It's sketch time at Simply Stampin' this week and what a lovely layout it is!  I've stayed faithful to the sketch but actually I think it would be fun to play around with it and try different shapes.  I hope you'll come along and play with us and make a project with this sketch, I'd love to come and see what you make!

Baja Breeze, Elegant Eggplant and Rose Red are definite fave colours of mine but I don't think I've ever put the 3 colours together but that's what I used here for my combo (with some Whisper White) and I used my much loved SU! Just Believe set.  I made a Baja Breeze side opening A6 landscape card, added the white punched Eyelet Border and the Elegant Eggplant strip.  I stamped the silhouette flowers twice in Elegant Eggplant ink without re-inking, cut the panel to size, inked the edges and matted it onto a Rose Red layer.  I then stamped my two circle images, punched them out, sponged the edges and added those to the card.  I stamped the gorgeous leafy frame, added the sentiment, cut it out and popped it up.  To finish off the card front, I added a Rose Red marbled button with some white grosgrain ribbon threaded through the holes.

Here's the inside of the card and the front of the envelope.  I may add a sentiment inside later when I know what occasion I'm going to use the card for - or I may leave it as a note card.
