Playing in Paradise

*It's one of those rare, two-in-a-day posts! For the latest
Crafty Creations Challenges post, please click here

Feel free to picture me jumping up and down when I discovered I was one of the winners in last week's Playing in Paradise challenge! And now, this week's challenge is to use mists, one of my new favourite toys. Last week, I got my project in with, oh, minutes to spare, so I thought instead of waiting until tomorrow I'd enter tonight. 

This is one of those put-things-together-and-see-what-happens cards. I ended up with this misted tag, the cute little envelope, and some washi and cardstock strips. One of the best things about this Tattered Angels glimmer mist (besides it being red, gold and shimmery) is it finally gives me a reason to like my ruby red cardstock since it's a perfect match. (Otherwise, I feel calling it "ruby" is a big overstatement.) 
In addition to the Playing in Paradise challenge, I'm entering this in the Anything Goes challenges at My Graphico and Simon Says Stamp

Supplies: Stampin' Up ruby red & very vanilla cardstock, gold pearl paper, patterned paper scrap, PSA Essentials Love Birds stamp, Versamark ink, pirate's gold embossing powder, Tattered Angels Santa Baby glimmer mist, We R Memory Keepers washi tape, dimensionals

Pin It Now!

You rocked that mist! It's so perfectly evenly splattered! Love that little envelope with it and is the ribbon made of washi?

Such a great CAS card! Love the gold embossing too! Thanks for playing with us at Scrapbooker's Paradise this week!

This is fabulous! Love the colours and layout. Is that washi tape I see? :)

Hi, Lindsey - thanks for visiting my blog today, and reminding me about tomorrow's challenge. Your tag is so sweet - a perfect Valentine!

Red and gold is so pretty together! Wonderful combination, though maybe a bit difficult to make and to put on the photo. It's probably even more pretty in real life, when the gold shines to you. It's a wonderful card!
Hugs, Wendy

That glimmer mist is gorgeous and so is your clever layout which provides the perfect background for the sweet tag.
