CR84FN #11

So... the other day I made a card that turned out EXACTLY how I envisioned it would turn out.  Today I have a card that didn't turn out quite how I had envisioned it would.  I still like the card, but well....  I used the current color combo from CR84FN of kraft, brown & red!  I love anything with kraft so doing this challenge was a no-brainer.  



I stamped the kraft card base with the Hero Arts Musical background using Versamark ink for the tone on tone effect.  The smaller musical image is also from Hero Arts.  That was stamped on Vintage Cream cardstock using Close to Cocoa ink.  The "love" and heart are from the {Stamps}of Life set Hearts2Build.  Those were stamped using Real Red ink.  I spritzed all three pieces with some Vanilla Smooch.   Some twine, a red button and the Zva crystal flourish finished off the card.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft & vintage cream; Stamps:  Hero Arts:  Musical Background & Musical Clef; Stamps of Life Hearts2Build; Ink:  Real Red, Close to Cocoa; VersaMark; Twine & Button:  PTI; Zva Creative Flourish
