Yummy Hearts Challenge

Happy Superbowl Sunday!

Today's post features another Valentine's Day themed card I just finished. I've really been digging the Valentine theme this year! (I have a feeling I will be sad once the 14th comes and passes.) Anywho, I hadn't originally conceived this card to go towards a challenge, but have found that it will fit perfectly with The Paper Variety's challenge, which is,
Yummy Hearts!

I've been working on the layering concept of patterns/colors/stamping/etc. and while I have seen A LOT of fabulous cards around featuring the technique, I find myself still a bit overwhelmed when I try it on my own - though I am getting there! So as busy as it could be, I did my best to keep the card simple and on track with my Valentine theme.

Here's the Pictures:

How I made it:
Michaels dollar bin stamp in red on white cardstock
Bright red strip at bottom

For the red with hearts banner I used a glitter red paper and Recollections border punch (both from Michaels)
"Sweetheart" sentiment and hearts are Studio G clear stamps on a thin white cardstock strip

Hope you have enjoyed this sweet & simple card, would love to hear your thoughts on it too!

Until next time!
