Well as soon as I saw this theme it instantly reminded me of a card I made last month for my mum for her birthday - and well its just sitting in one of my computer files so thought I would dig it out and enter this fab challenge! You've gotta take a look at all the DT work on this challenge totally and utterly gorgeous....
So here is my little card:-
The reason I choose this particular BP for this card is that my mum had seen the paper in one of my paper pads I was showing her that I had brought at a craft show and she loved this particular one. She said it reminded her of the wallpaper we had at home when I was younger (albeit that it was all gold and not red!!) but we did have red carpet - sounds hideous - but actually it was nice - honest!! So that was the starting point for this card - I too just love this BP its by Authentique and is called Uncommon.
Right off for mid-afternoon cup of tea and mince pie!
