BC80 - Happy Valentine's Day

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! -  First I want to thank everyone who visited my blog last year and left wonderful comments.  It really meant a lot to me. I hope that 2009 will be a good year for everyone and that you'll drop in often.  This is my first card of the New Year.  I hope you like it.                    The Bloggers Challenge Group was issued a Color Combo for this weeks challenge (Chocolate Chip, Red, Baja Breeze) and White/Vanilla optional.  For some reason these colors just seemed to shot out Valentine's Day to me so that is the theme that I went with. 
Stamps: Cat & Bird - Whipper Snapper Designs, Sentiment from SU Holiday and Wishes
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Baja Breeze, Whisper White and
Ski Slope Designer Paper
Ink: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeae, Real Red
Other:  Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Birds and Swirls, Lace Punch (Martha Stewart),Oval and Scallop Oval Punches - Marvy, Heart Die (Source Unknown), 3 small red brads (Queen and Co.), Real Red Glitter (Art Institute) and foam mounting tape.
