This is a Design Team LO for the September kit Mon Amour. The beautiful new papers from My Minds Eye are just gorgeous. I usually have a problem doing just black and red, but the addition of the gorgeous cream colors and the designs of the papers made it soooo easy!!. My Minds Eye has really done a beautiful job with this line.Union Station. The photo is my friend Tanya on her wedding day. She so graciously let me "steal" her photo's. She is so beautiful. And a sweetheart!!
I stamped the border of the red cardstock with one of my new Recollections stamps. Did some water distressing on the black and cream paper and scaled down one of my templates for the photo mat and backed it with red card stock. I sewed a single outline in red.
I used one of my Spellbinders label dies in 2 sizes. I embossed them and raised them with pop dots between the layers. The tiny letters I created in Microsoft Word and cut them out.
The beautiful spray of flowers is from Prima - Valentine Vine Collection - Heart and Flower Embellishments in red. There was really no need for any other flowers on the page.And with so many other flowers in the kit and add ons and what I can create...I am off to create more with the kit!!!
