Rustic Valentine Challenge

Hi, it's Tyra and I'm back with this super lovely challenge. First, I would like to announce the winner of last month's Gratitude Challenge:

Laura Baylay!

Congratulations, Laura! Please email seiblog{at}shopsei{dot}com for your prize! Happy shopping!!!

Rustic Valentine is the theme for this month's challenge.

The words "rustic" and "vintage" inspired me to use colors beyond the traditional red, pink and white often used for Valentine's day. I started with pennants from SEI's Banner Kit as my foundation, my die cutting machine and SEI papers and sundries to create a series of rustic, vintage valentine banners. What I espcially like about SEI's sundries is each embellishment is double sided, with metallic version on one side and matte on the other.

I might add string to one of these banners and attach to a gift for my husband. I will most likely string the remaining banners together to create a cute valentine collage for hanging in my office.

The Mia Bella paper collection would work perfectly with this theme. Believe it or not, the Chalet collection of rustic paper (that gorgeous mountain ash cardstock) and traditional reds (try the cherry oak cardstock) is a neat option. What will you create?
