Children at Play...

A month ago I did the wrong challenge for Triplicate Trials Tuesday, but finally it is here & so I have my card done ahead....yay!!! This is the challenge:

And this is my card:






 I have dry embossed my patterned paper and sponged around it, layer it on red and then onto the crumbcake coloured card. I have used eggplant / purple card as my strip layering it over with some pattern paper which you can see I have torn. The images of the children come from an old card I found and have cut up and layered again onto crumbcake coloured card, distressing around the edge before layering it on a red ribbon only allowing the heart border to show. The flower was left over from a project I did for a friend, and I am sorry to say I do not remember the brand, but it seemed to fit so well with purple tints on cream. For the lettering FUN I have used the retired Stampin' Up Whimsical Alphabet which is still one of my favorites. I hope you like it. Other challenges I have entered it in are:
