My Knight

I usually approach my projects looking at what challenges are out there to help me in finding a direction to go with my project. I needed a Valentine card for my DH (who brought me home roses yesterday) and I didn't want to wait until Saturday to make it! Yes, I procrastinate but I try not to be that bad! LOL!

Anyway, I have been wanting to use the CPS sketch challenge for this week. I knew I wanted to use My Knight set from Artistic Outpost, so I turned to SCS Color Challenge #193 for the colors Real Red, Basic Black and Kraft. Yes, I actually used Kraft on my card. I think it is from the original package I bought years (and years) ago! LOL!

This card is actually the first version. Just a bit wimpy for a knight, don't you think?

After I was completed and saw the card on the screen I decided to remove the kraft as the base and replace it with the black. I also tucked the red "lace" up under the knight layer. Here is the finished card.

Stamps: My Knight (Artistic Outpost); Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Kraft, Old World Stack (DCWV); Accessories: Red brads (SU), Tag was modified from CB die tag, "lace" border uses Wrought Iron corner slot punch (SU-retired).
