Oh wow! Bec your challenge has produced some beautiful cards! Ginny and Kathy, yours are both stunning!
I made mine today for my daughter. She loves “Pride and Prejudice” so I thought she would love these vintage images from Pion’s “Where the Roses Grow”.February 18, 2017 at 12:33 pm #457512February 18, 2017 at 2:21 pm #457516

Love this card Ginny, the colours are gorgeous and the folding looks amazing
My Valentines stepper card for Bec’s Card Challenge. I used the ‘love/valentines’ theme and used a heart in my design. I used die cuts from the Prima Rossibelle paper “Sweet Souvenirs”, Pebbles gingham paper, pink cardstock and gems from a previous Swirlydoos kit.

I’ve created three cards, all using scraps from this month’s projects and items that I’ve been hoarding for far too long.
For my first card, I cut out a 5×7 piece from paper that was left from the layout that I made for the Round Robin. The heart is actually an experiment gone wrong: I tried to use a thin Spellbinders die on thin chipboard and ended up with an outline pretty much cut out and a sort of embossed inside. I gave it a coating of gesso and then several layers of mist, finishing it off with some distress inking.
To finish, I wrapped the stem of my flower with a bit of twine before gluing down and adhered a sentiment to the center of the pattern circle.
The base of the second card is another Round Robin scrap: Devotion from Splash of Color’s Cotswald Manor Collection. I tried the Spellbinders die again, this time with a cereal box and it was thin enough to make a perfect cut. After priming it with gesso, I heat embossed it in several layers to match the lace border that I placed on each side. I finished it all off with a cluster of flowers and two metal keys.
I used scraps from the Delicate kit, along with layers of cardstock and a piece of stripped corrugated packaging to assemble my third entry. A bit a Prima vine, a metal heart and a length of upholstery thread and I called it done.

Peggy these cards are gorgeous!! It’s amazing what can be made from scraps. I love them allFebruary 21, 2017 at 10:56 pm #457604
And I agree about the scraps; I’ve finally decided to force myself to use them up at the end of the month; I’m so tired of having piles of bits and pieces that I never seem to use.
