It's Time to Celebrate...

Happy Valentine's Day!   My card isn't a valentine, but I did use valentine colors of red, pink & white for the card.  After making a few one layer cards that were, quite frankly, less than stellar tonight I have made one that I'm very, very happy with. 



Recently I found a new clean & simple challenge blog called "Less is More" and the challenge there this week is to make a one layer card.   That dovetailed nicely with the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week to make.... yep a one layer card!   And the color story came from this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge.  



After messing about all afternoon making a fairly complicated project that I be posting once I get a good photo of it I wanted to make something fairly easy.  I also wanted to make a card using a new Stampin Up! set that I acquired recently called Fast & Fabulous.  I stamped the outline image using SU!'s Cherry Cobbler ink and then the "filler" image in SU!'s Riding Hood Red.  Some SU! Pink Pirouette ribbon was tied at the top and the sentiment from Hero Arts was stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  A few pink rhinestones finished off the card.

Thanks for taking a peek.... yes, I changed the look of my blog, again!  But I think I will keep it this way for awhile...
Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; Stamps:  SU! Fast & Fabulous; Inks:  SU! Riding Hood Red & Cherry Cobbler; SU! Pink Pirouette ribbon; Pink Rhinestones

Lovely card would love to see it without to ribbon...sure it would work brilliantly! [no offence! One Layer strictly speaking needs to be just that!

I do love your card, nonetheless, that stamp is beautiful, I have it too!
