Red, black and pink....oh, and mauve!

That is Colour Thowdown's colour Challenge #128 - is speaks obviously of passion! And I have just noted that Let's Ink It Up has one on romance also, so here goes."

While doing a bit of a hop around tonight, I found a Challenge site, the StampMan, where hearts on your project were required, so I entered it! As well, I have entered this card into Paper Pretties Challenge - anything to do with Valentines. 

Papercraft Star have a sketch Challenge #32 but it closed before I got this entry in! Pity.  Some of these Challenges are so short in time; only two or three actual days to make and enter. Life is a bit busier in my neck of the woods. Anyway, enough about whining.

I stamped the heart circle, cut it out and sponged the centre before I removed the die cutter. I stamped the word and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I dry embossed the red card and cut an fancy edge with the MS edge punch. The wrapped around the ribbon and lace, and layered it all onto the black and white DP before attaching to the folded card. Lastly I added a lilac heart puffy sticker.
