Heart Card for Numerous Challenges using Dynamic Duos #36 Colors

The challenge at Dynamic Duos this week is Real Red and Black with a Valentine theme.  Close To My Heart will be introducing new patterned papers in their new catalog which goes live on February 1 and "For Always" is among those wonderful new papers.  I've used it here as the background panel which is placed over Ruby CS.  The Ruby heart was cut with the Artiste cartridge at 2.75" accent 2, shift, page 51 and the black scalloped heart mat behind it was cut at 3" accent 2, page 51.  Love was stamped with White Daisy Ink and then embossed with White Daisy Embossing Powder.  A strip of Black Tulle Ribbon was bunched up and attached to the patterned paper before the heart and ribbon trim were attached.  The pleated ribbon is Riding Hood Red which is retired from Stampinup! 

There are many other challenges this week that are using a Valentine or hearts theme and I am also linking this card up to:

Inky Chicks #2 Becky's Bingo--Ribbon, Sentiment, Flowers
Pile it on #3--Have a Heart
Craft Us Crazy--Love or red theme
Really Reasonable Ribbon #64--Valentine's Day, Love & Ribbon theme
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #37--Love, Romance, Anniversary
Pink Gem Challenge #63--Embossing

If you like color challenges like I do, please come play with us at Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week's colors are Close To My Heart Black, White and a pop of color (your choice of CTMH color)--submissions are due Thursday evening at 9PM CT.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
