But wait... there's more!

I'm feeling this one a bit more. This is my second card for both the Friday Mashup and the Colour Q challenge. The Mashup challenge was a sketch challenge, and the Colour Q challenge was to use black, white, and any other color. I'm trying to get a jump start on Valentine's cards, so red it is.

I used the new Framelits labels and then embossed it. I used a non-SU embossing folder. Then I sponged the edges with black and distressed it a bit. Then I also sponged in the hearts in real red. The rest is obvious, basic black, whisper white, word window, modern label, ribbon punch. Inside, I did stamp the "love you much" sentiment from Well Scripted in red ink on white and used the heart punch. It's very cute (sorry no picture of that!)

Thanks for looking...

I really like this embossing folder Lisa, nice job on just highlighting the hearts in red and the rest in soft black.

Ohh this came out great.. I love how you added pops of color over the embossed areas. I starting to like these new Dies the more I see them. Thanks for playing with us at the Friday Mashup.
