Happy Valentine’s Day ,,,,,, :-)

Hi all ,,, Sooo ,, have you all received a lovely Valentine’s card and beautiful bunch of long stemmed red roses ??? ,, no ,,,, me neither ,,, lol :-) Never mind eh ,, am sure someone loves us :-)

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge we have a colour combo for you…

BLACK, WHITE AND RED ALL OVER ,,, excludes skin tones ,,,

We are sponsored by Whiff of Joy so a fab prize on offer for one lucky entrant :-)

I made this card for my hubby, he doesn’t like fussy and fancy so I have kept this quite simple. My apologies for the photo, it looks quite dull but is lovely and sparkly IRL ,,,, honest ! :-)

I used hero Arts stamps from a Love Everyday Clear set I stamped 3 hearts onto red card and cut them out, I then painted glue around the edges and sprinkled with black glitter. I cut a strip of plain white card, stamped black hearts randomly and stamped the sentiment too, I then sprayed with Diamond Glimmer, very shimmery IRL. The paper is from a Basic Grey Little Black Dress pack and I used a Tim Holtz Flourish die cut, I smothered this with black glitter too, the lovely rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added a few red pearls to finish ,,,

Hope you have a lovely day and maybe a special dinner this evening ,,, music, candles, romance ,,,, if not then you could always join me in a blog hop ,,,, lol :-)
