Papertrey Playhouse Challenge #8 Love

I'm so happy to have been able to participate in the latest Papertrey Playhouse Group Blog Challenge.  It got busy and I wasn't able to create for the last couple of challenges, but never fear!  the ideas I had for those challenges are still with me (for now) and I plan on utilizing them and will post them here once they're finished.  A good idea is still a good idea even if it's late right??

But on to the current challenge.  Amy challenged us to create a Valentine's card (perfect for me since I've been in overdrive on these lately) but we weren't supposed to use the traditional pink and red on them.  HHHmmmmm.  That ups the ante a little doesn't it??!

In my recent create frenzy I came up with this.  I really love so many things about it.  My color scheme is green & red.  Had to include the red as it was one of 3 colors on the label that inspired the whole thing.  Hope Amy will forgive me.  :)

I try to practice the 3 R's - reduce, reuse, recycle - as much as I can.  This is such a cool example of reusing & recycling.  I'd peeled this label off a green pepper sauce bottle at a local bar ages ago.  Peeling labels is a bad habit of mine.  But this one came off so neatly and I just knew I could use it somehow, at some time so it got tucked away in my odds and ends in the office.

To be pulled out as the PERFECT accent for this challenge.  :)  I even had Mel take me there Monday night for dinner so I could peel some more off.

Supplies: Card base & env - The Paper Company; dies - Spellbinders - banners (yep, this is a new one & an instant favorite!), Accucut - heart 7; font - CK Journaling; cardstock - core'dinations; patterned paper - PTI Distressed Dots in Ripe Avacoado; Copic YG95 & airbrushing system; Label - McIlhenny
