Forever Young with ColourQ

Good morning,

As soon as I saw this weeks colour combo over at ColourQ I knew I wanted to join in, I don't tend to use much Red but I like the colour so I thought, let's have a go!

Here is the colour palette for this week

Aren't those wooden heart gorgeous! I know these colours are calling out to make a valentines card with but I've already made my man his card, so I thought I would use the colours to make my friends birthday card.

I sponged Real Red around the Crumb Cake layer before stamping the tree from Forever Young in Basic Black, white ribbon was wrapped around to ground the tree. I then layered this onto a Basic Black matt. I then set to work stamping the frame in Regal Rose, Real Red and Basic Black, and my eyes went squiffy as I cut each frame out. I finished off the card with a greeting from the retired Plane and Simple set, cut with the Word Window punch and accented with an antique brad.

I saw a similar tag made on the internet a while back a remembered the lined up frames, but I'm afraid I can't remember where I saw it.

Don't forget to pop back tomorrow for the next Simply Stampin' challenge!
