Time Out #128 - Home Sweet Home challenge

Hi there!  There's a new challenge over on the Time Out blog and this time around it's our Home Sweet Home challenge, using the picture below as inspiration.
Stamplorations is our sponsor for this challenge, and I'm using their Romantic Expressions 3 stamp set.  I stamped the heart image onto Bristol cardstock and colored it with Zig markers then fussy cut it out.  I wanted to somehow incorporate the envelope background in the photo and thought this 3-D embossing folder sort of did the trick.  I die cut the word from red cardstock and added it to the piece.  I also die cut a scalloped mat for the main panel.  I added the acrylic hearts as a finishing touch.
You can see more from the Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, Conil, on the Time Out blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

oh Lisa this is a beauty! Your colouring is fab and wow that is some fab fussy cutting. I wanted to use the envelope in my card also but couldn't make it work-you found a great solution it works really well and gives the card a lovely texture. I like that frame of red-a lovely fresh card x

I love that we both picked up on the envelope background- I think your take on it with the subtle embossed background is genius and goes so perfectly with the sweet heart image! Fabulous design!

I love this, Lisa. You certainly achieved what you set out to do. Love that embossed background, the tiny hearts, the scalloped red panel... all goes together beautifully and really a great take on the inspiration.
