Valentine Love

Hi Everybody,
as promised I'm back again with another piece of inspiration for you. This must have been one of the quickest cards I ever made. I was just about to go to bed last night when I realized that I forgot to make my card for the special Time Out Challenge post over at STAMPlorations. I already had in mind that I would use the lovely new Hearts All Over stencil. I just love those tumbling hearts!
I quickly sponged some pink followed by red over the center. The red adds more depth to the pink and enhances the faded edge look I wanted to achieve. I then aligned and stamped my sentiments (Bold Sentiments: Cherish) before layering on my black base card and adding some confetti hearts for a sparkly finish.

The pink and black makes for a striking colour scheme, here is another more straight on view:
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Time Out - Valentine's Day with optional twist of hearts
Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday
Crafty Creations - something old, something new, stencil is new, sentiments & confetti hearts are old
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
Moo-Mania - Anything Goes

That's it for now, back later today with my STAMPlorations Spotlight Project and video tutorial. See you then. Have a lovely day!
