Fred She Said New Challenge

Good Monday Morning! It's time for a new Fred She Said Challenge this month!

But first....The WINNER for Jan challenge is ANNE (of Wicked Witch)!!! Congratulations Anne!!!

The challenge for this month is...

Since this is the month of LOVE, create something with at least 3 hearts on it.

Be sure to use a FRED SHE SAID image somewhere on your card! If you don't have one, there are LOADS of freebies available HERE!
~The prize~
a $20 gift certificate for the Fred She Said store!

Stamps: FSS carnation,
SU! so many sayings
Ink: Prisma/Koh-i-noor pencils
Paper: SU! cs
Other: MS trefoil border punch,
dew drops, organza ribbon

Isn't this a striking color combo.....I CASEd this color combo from Jojot (SCS)! Joanne (Inky Ocean Gazer) is one of the wow-artists who inspire me! Check out her gorgeous creation HERE.
Since she was a featured stamper a while back, I kept the rules set by SCS! I did keep the colors and her overall layout, though I veered a bit. I changed the flower, of course to this lovely FSS carnation! I changed the shape of the card along with the border, punch and the embellishments.

I hope you'll play along with the FSS girls this month! We would love to see what you create!!

this really is a striking color combination! The added black and the shade of blue you used keeps it from looking too red-white-and blue patriotic. I really love your piercing too Maria!
