Romantic Mini Card

Hello!  I've got a mini card for you today, just dripping with romantic tones.  It's being entered in the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger challenge.  Here's the inspiration photo:


I was inspired by the color palette, of course, and these other things:

  • The dark vertical curtains (Eiffel Tower image on my card)
  • The carpet's swirls (my swirly die cut)
  • Accents of white in the room (white scalloped border punch)
  • Flowers on table (floral Webster's Pages paper)

I'm also entering this at Lily Pad Cards - use flowers.  Love that challenge!

My mom went home yesterday.  We miss her!  It was wonderful to spend time with her, and we probably won't see each other for another year.  :-(

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

What a beauty, Colleen! I love how you used that gorgeous WP paper. I always struggle with how best to use richly detailed papers like that. You mentioned this is mini--what size is it? It almost looks like a full-sized card! Great colors and details here. I think you captured the essence of that pretty room in your inspiration photo perfectly. :)
