Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Blog Challenge #48 - Anything Goes with a Twist: Add a SPLASH of RED!!!!

This week at Suzy B's Blooming Challenge Blog our wonderful sponsor is Paper Pretties. Of course it's Anything Goes but this week with a twist - a splash of red!!!!! 

For my Design Team project, I chose A Tale of Two Hearts. This card is for my boyfriend, Bob. He's such a sweetie. When we go to his cabin he rides around after we get our ice cream cone of course to find the best place to sit and watch the sunset AND on our one trip he stopped and got me a baby kitty. NOW, how purrrfect is this card??? He's a gentle, loving man whom I'm lucky to be with . . . 

  • red Recollection card stock cut for a size A2 card
  • background is from my stash and its a tie-die which looks purrfect for a sunset which was then chalked around the edges
  • kitties were colored with Spectrum Noir Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils to create the sunset and gel pen accents and chalked around the  edges
  • bakery twine was wrapped around the one side of the card with a red bow
  • sentiment, "Purrfect for each other!" was chalked around the rounded edges and added to a scrap of the tie die paper -  now, how purrrfect is that for a sentiment??? 
  • I love love love the color red and I may have gone a bit overboard with my "splash" but hey . . . . it's a sunset!!!!
P.S. If you look very closely at my image, you can see a faint image of the sun between the two cats!!!

Here's one of those glorious sunsets we sat and watched at Pymatuning . . . .
