BC199 - Love is in the air

Hello and Happy Friday!
Please take a moment to scroll down and view the AnnaBelle Challenge (Say it with Polka Dots) cause I really like how my card turned out! - Pop back by on Sunday as we begin "Sneak Peeks" for the next Release this coming week.

Now it's time for the Blogger Challenge and our theme this week is: LOVE....What says "Love" more then a Valentine Card!

For this card I dusted off an old SU set: Loving Hearts and created this funky little Valentine.
Card Base: Whisper White
Layered with, Basic Black, XOXO DP-DCWV
Next up a Distressed panel of Whisper White and a Punched Border of Real Red on which the heart border was stamped in Basic Black ink.

The sentiment is retired SU and was embossed with Black EP.
Punch SU
The main heart was stamped with Real Red ink, distressed with Basic Black ink and mounted with foam tape.

I even did the inside of the card:

Pretty quick and easy to make.

You can give this challenge a try yourself by linking up here:



Have a great weekend.

I have been sitting on your blog for awhile (even before you were on mine...ha!). I have all these windows open but I keep getting distracted!

That is a super cute heart and the focal and I like the background you added to that loopy BG! Are you gonna give this to the hubs?
