SSCB#52 - Anything Goes - Heart Bouquet

We've switched things up at Serendipity Stamps just a bit.   We have a monthly challenge that now begins on the first of every month, so it's easier to keep track of when it starts and how long you have to play.   The challenge is easy this time.. Anything Goes!  

Maybe you have some new stamps or dies from Serendipity that you've been neglecting?  Nows a good time to dust them off!  We've got the Queen of NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff), Darnell Knauss of djkardkreations joining us this month! 
I'm in "Valentine's" mode lately!  There's so many great images to choose from and this is one of my favorites.  It's called Heart Bouquet.  I know.. you were probably expecting all pink and red hearts.  I thought I'd try something a little different and add some yellows to coordinate with the background paper.

Speaking of background papers... did you read that Basic Grey is closing their doors? I'm heart broken!  I love their papers and often place orders direct so I can get new and old collections without having to search for them in the stores.   I'm really going to miss their beautiful papers like these that just came out in January! This collection is called Sun Kissed.

I have lots of beautiful rolls of washi and have been trying to incorporate it more into my designs.   It's too pretty to leave in the drawer!
I was thinking of the little card holder that comes with flowers for a clever way to attach my sentiment.  I inserted a pin through the hole and adhered it behind the main panel on the front of the card. 
I hope you'll join us at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog!  You can get ideas and see projects from the design team there or by clicking on their names below.  You have an entire month to play!

Love that happy bouquet. And, perfectly colored. I must play along this month, as I have quite a few new Serendipity stamps now. (wink wink)
