A Single Heart


Well, this is the "last of the litter"! I finally remembered that this coming Monday is Valentine's Day so I got all my cards mailed out today - except for this one. I'll be giving this to my husband for the "big day".

The square images were made with an old SU set called Mostly Flowers (thanks Kristin!) and the heart with a set from CTMH called Soul Mates. I looked up the Mostly Flowers set in SCS under the gallery and saw several that I guess this could be a CASE of - but none that I saw had the heart in the center. I used some Cherry Cobbler, White, and Black card stock. The squares were stamped with Archival Black from CTMH and the heart with Cherry Cobbler. I also heat embossed the heart using Iridescent Ice. The ribbon is some that I had in my stash and really matches that Cherry Cobbler.

This will be for the following challenges; Creative Inspirations Paint - inspired by hearts, and for Stampin Royalty - hearts, and last but not least - The Paper Players - love is in the air!

Thanks for stopping by...............
