More Love

Hi everyone and welcome to another weekend, and not too bad a one either.... the birds are chirping away quite happily and I can see some crocus flowering so hopefully spring is just around the corner.

Anyway I have another 'love' card to show you using a Penny Black 'valentine dance' stamp that I just bought in the sale. The heart was die-cut with an Xcut die and inlaid back into the negative part, then I tied a ribbon around the top before sticking to a coloured card base. I was going to use the Valentine's sentiment from the same set but as that day has already gone I decided to use a Uniko sentiment instead. Seeing the finished card now I do think it would have looked much better if I'd raised the heart up.

and here's a closer look at the inlaid heart

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge 'sketch'
Allsorts challenge 'anything goes'
Love To Scrap challenge 'you loves you, baby!'
CASology challenge 'romance'
Die Cut Divas challenge 'February is a month for using red or pink'
Penny Black Saturday challenge 'try something new' my new stamp
STAMPlorations CAS Card challenge 'anything CASgoes with optional colour twist hot pink'

As usual I started the week off with all good intentions but there really don't seem to be enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do and I still have a pile of new goodies I must have a play with. Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a fun weekend whatever you plan on doing.
