I am so pleased to share my first card as a guest designer for the month of January! Thank you so much for thinking of me Mary!
Julia chose such wonderful colors, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede and Raspberry Ripple with the dessert option of floral or frosty. I am not much of a frosty gal, so I chose floral.
I used Very Vannila for my card base. The DP is Colorbok with a little chalk on the edges. I used a SB labels seventeen and a SB Floral Oval in Raspberry Ripple. Then I have a SB regular oval and some SB Parisian Accent border die (In cut to fit) in Soft Suede. The sentiment is also a Parisian Accent die and is in Whisper white. I used some SU! seam binding with an antique brad and some flowers from my stash that matched so perfectly : ) Lastly I punched two hearts and used a Verve sentiment.
Thank you again for allowing me to be a guest designer for the color challenge! It really is an honor to me!

This card is so rich in color with that large raspberry die cut and beautifully accented by the fancy suede borders! I love the seam binding bow with the antique brad and flowers...it's the perfect accent for this lovely card. Congratulations on being one of the guest designers...your cards are awesome!
