i {heart} papers and Zva Creative Joint Blog Hop


Good morning all! Today I’m teaming up with some of my fellow design team members from Zva Creative and designers from i {heart} papers to share a new project using Zva’s beautiful crystals and fall patterned paper that is available at i {heart} papers. Possibly you've arrived here from Carolyn Mustopa's  blog, if not, I wouldn't want you to miss any creative enlightenment along the way so the hop starts at the Zva Creative blog.
We are celebrating a week-long event that is happening over at Paper Craft Planet.  The Planet’s design team, the Super Novas, are hosting special fall challenges all week that feature both Zva Creative and paper from i {heart} papers. Be sure to stop by, see their lovely creations and be inspired to join in on the fun!



I received some beautiful Fall themed paper called Chillingsworth Manor by Echo Park from i {heart} papers and decided to go somewhat on the elegant side, but while also adding a bit of Halloween influence with the border punch and black gems. 
These are the Zva Creative items I used on this card:

FL-04CA-111 (36pc leaves #I - 1.5")
CRW-05CB-147 (Flourishes- Jet Crystal)
CRW-04CB-124 (Dots Crystal - Jet (0.3 cm & 0.5 cm)
FLBK-03CB-139 (sweet rose (72 stems) 1-3/8" or 35mm - Peach)
FLBK-03CB-122 (mini rose (144 stems) -7/8" or 23mm -White)
FLBK-03CB-108 (mini rose (144 stems) -1/2" or 12mm - Ginger)
FLBK-03CB-101 (mini rose (144 stems) -1/2" or 12mm - White)
