My Heart's in this Mashup

This is the card I came up with for this week's challenge over on The Friday Mashup. The challenge was to use Early Espresso, Blushing Bride, and Riding Hood Red or paper piercing or Mash-It-Up and do both. The crazy thing is, I actually dreamed this card design. Weird, huh?

I dreamed about the four score lines, one along each side, on a neutral base. For this one, I decided on Natural White. I made one with score lines 1/4" from each side. The other one, I scored 3/8" from each side.

Next I have a layer of Early Espresso topped with layer of Blushing Bride. I used the ticket corner punch on both of those. Next, I punched out a bunch of hearts in espresso, red, blush, and the white. I stamped the sentiment on the white in espresso and colored in the hearts with red. I pierced the red heart and embossed the espresso one with clear embossing powder. The medium hearts are popped up.

I really dig these cards! I hope you like them, too. Now, I didn't come up with 8 more cards for this challenge (sorry!), but I did come up with lots more Valentine's cards so stop back by and check them out...

Thanks for looking!
