I combined another two challenges for my card today -- a card sketch from Pal's Paper Arts and a colour challenge from Dynamic Duos.
I love this card sketch and was so excited to create a card with it! The dessert option for Dynamic Duos is a Valentine Theme. Perfect! I love making Valentine cards :) At first I wasn't sure about using black in my card. When I think of Valentine's, I think of red, pink, white... not black. So, I made the black a very subtle colour in my card... this is how it turned out:
For the background, I used the transparent designer paper from the Candlelight Specialty DSP. It has a felt embossed design on it and I think it's simply elegant! I embossed the Whisper White cardstock with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and it seems to match perfectly! I then wrapped Real Red grosgrain ribbon around the card front. The delicate doilies add to the elegance of this card. I added hearts in white and red. Small rhinestones embellish the card. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black and I sponged the edges of the white hearts and doily with Basic Black ink.
What do you think of using black as a valentine colour?
