I was drawn to the diamond pattern in the rich red ribbon in the photo. I found a cling stamp with rows of diamonds in last year's Tim Holtz Stamptember cling set. It has an added star to it but I figured it would work. Stamped and gold embossed it on a red card, then diecut into a pierced rectangle. Added it to a top fold A2 black card. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and considered gold embossing but loved the watermark look. Clear embossed it to make it pop even more. I stamped and colored the candles, fussy cut and adhered with foam tape. Keeping it simple, I added nothing else.
See Merry Monday for the challenge details and the beautiful Design Team cards. I hope you get a chance to play along this week! Thanks for stopping!!
