Black-White-Red Bloggers' Challenge

Today is a snowday.....like many others, I'm snowed in! Meaning, it's a GREAT day to stay inside, nice and cozy......and STAMP!! And I did....I'm actually catching up a bit on the Challenges I've missed. Not all of them, mind you, but some.
I know I've been side tracked lately.....about a week ago, I completed 125 Save the Date cards for the daughter of a good friend, and this week, I've been working on my son's wedding invitations. He's getting married in May....boy, time is flying by! So, I have been stamping, but haven't been able to share much. Today, I have a few posts for you and lots to share, so please bare with me!
This card is simple...and meets the Bloggers' Challenge for last week. I just recently received some of the Hugs Love Notes* featured in the Occasions Mini....they are just so cute! Those little scallops are already done, all I needed to do was STAMP.....and I added the paper piercing as well. (*Love Notes are located on Page 19 of the Occasions Mini Catalog.....20 to a package for only $3.95!) This was layered on a slightly larger piece of Basic Black. The Real Red background was stamped randomly with the open heart image from I (Heart) Hearts......which if you purchase by February 28, SU will donate $2 from every set sold. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Not sure if you can tell, but the filigree heart image has been cut out and mounted on the dotted heart image. Simple, but I like the way it came out!
Stamps: I (Heart) Hearts, Well Scripted (both sets are in the Occasions Mini)
Inks: White Craft, Real Red, Basic Black
CS: Whisper White, Real Red, Hugs Love Notes
Misc: Wide Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Red Button (retired), Linen Thread, Dimensionals
Please Note: ALL materials used to create this sample are from SU!
Thanks for stopping by today....be sure to check back for more, coming soon!

Barbara, so glad you had time to make this lovely card! I love how you stamped the hearts in white on the background and the use of the love hugs notes...why did I not realize they had a scalloped edge! They're great used on the front for the sentiment layer!
