Hot 'n' Spicy

There’s a ‘Hot ‘n’ Spicy’ team challenge over at the Daring Cardmakers blog today and I had to make a card with that phrase in mind.

I thought the best starting point for this would be go through my ever growing stash of papers to find something that would fit with the theme.
Luckily I came across a sheet of stripy paper from Li’l Davis Designs that was a freebie at a crop I went to last summer and it fitted the ‘Hot ‘n’ Spicy’ theme to a tee.

My card is pretty basic…………..just layering the patterned paper and Burgundy card stock together and topped off with a stamped panel.

As I was putting my card together with the eyelets and ribbon it seemed to be lacking something, so I decided to run one of the panels through my Cuttlebug and emboss it with ‘Stylized Flowers’, which gave it the little lift it needed.

The rubber stamp is ‘Brush Tulips from Penny Black…..I love these water colour effect flower stamps and has a nice little collection of them now!
