Stampin' Up! I {heart} Hearts and Basic Phrases make Anniversary Cards

Hi again! Sorry it has been quiet around here again, it is peak uni assignment season, so I have spent my time doing my assignment.... This evening as a reward for getting more than half way through my Japanese assignment, I spent sometime in the craft room...
This is a Very Vanilla card base, layered with some KaiserCraft flocked paper (beautiful) I have then wrapped some pink satin ribbon around the patterned paper. I stamped three hearts from I {Heart} Hearts on some scrap Vanilla, in Daffodil Delight and Blushing Bride. I stamped the sentiment from Basic Phrases (which is retiring in 7 days!) in Basic Black and then stuck down the hearts, the Blushing Bride heart has had a  touch of dimension added, using a pop-dot. The image panel was mounted on a Blushing Bride piece, slightly bigger, and then it was all adhered to the front of the card.
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is The Paper Players sketch, which is quite a clean and simple one, but in my take, the white space element has been covered in patterned paper. The second is the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, which I have used the bold pattern on the floor as my inspiration, as well as the pink and yellow touches. 
Anyway, thanks for dropping by!
Happy Stamping!

Love that brocade background and the colors you used. The bold background grabs my eye first and then my eye is drawn to the hearts in the soft colors.

So pretty - really like how you've matched up the style of the designer paper with the design in the hearts. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week.
