Another Valentine


Here's another card I made for the Cards From the Heart Drive 2016. I started with a white card base embossed with a Cuttlebug Cross my Heart ef, then added a beautiful hand-crocheted medallion made by Jessi Fogan - which I won in a blog candy prize from her. (Thanks again Jessi) I die cut 2 more panels in red and white with MFT stitched circle dies, and added a Gina K sentiment to the center. The added red hearts where done with SU! punches, and this was done!

I'll be taking this over to the Shopping our Stash #233 challenge which is "color me monochromatic."

As always, I appreciate your dropping by, and I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Carol

What a beautiful card Carol! I love that crocheted medallion, so beautiful and of course the red and white color combo is perfect. Love the heart embossing folder too, and adding a few red hearts is the finishing touch. You had sun today?! We were grey, dismal and very foggy. Very depressing kind of day. I'm so sick of the fog advisories. We need sun around here! Hugs, Brenda
