Mojo Monday's sketch was Round or Square, so I chose the easier--Square! I LOVE these colors together, inspired by the Designer Series Paper "Love Letter." The colors in the paper are Riding Hood Red, Basic Black and Very Vanilla.

Accessories really made this card pop! I used the rich Basic Black Satin ribbon and one Basic Clear Rhinestone.

My Big Shot came in handy, allowing me to create that beautiful Basic Black Large Scallop Square. I ran it through a second time to texture it with the Textured Impressions Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

Two hand-held punches gave me the paper circle and the round scallop. "Amour" was stamped in two colors using my Stampin' Write markers and was then punched out using the Small Oval punch.

The square of Very Vanilla inside the Basic Black scalloped square is my own "designer" paper! I love creating my own background papers using my stamps. One of the Artistic Etchings stamps dipped into Riding Hood Red and repeated across the paper sideways completed the look I was going for.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card and that you will leave your comments below.

I love this stamp set. And now I want to get it out and use it again. I love how you used some of the smaller images. And the black satin ribbon is just so perfect with this.
