Black Valentine

I wanted to make a Valentine's Day card that was different and yet elegant, obviously this one will not be for my hubby....... but you know, maybe you could. I got this sketch from off of SCS and changed it up a bit but sticking with SU Always stamp set. I used the black base which is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and then layered the white with birds n swirls cuttlebug folder- I thought this just made it perfect. The heart is stamped in black on white cardstock and yes- I did cut that darned thing out and then I slightly inked the edges of the card. The black eyelet lace is a MS punch but SU also has this new punch in their new catty! Yahoo! Added a little black and white ribbon- the kindness phrase and tada! What do you think- a success at making it a little different?

Okay- you ladies want a chance at some Blog Candy? Claudia over at Pretty Pressings has some wonderful new Alota stamps! Go and check it out! Once you see her blog you will be back everyday, I want to grow up to be like Claudia- oh wait, she is younger than me I think!
