House of Cards February Challenge

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to the February House of Cards Challenge.
 The February Challenge is:

Love Theme and/or Colors

Here's what I came up with:

I chose three of the pinks from the color inspiration.
From them I die-cut hearts in three different sizes.
I layered them and stitched them in place on another pink background.
I stamped a sentiment in pink ink.
Finally, I added a big pink rhinestone.

There's lots of dimension on this card.

Here's a closer look at the hearts:

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
 Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Hearts;
Bling: Crafts - Pink Rhinestones;
Stamp: Penny Black Sentiment;
Ink: Martha Stewart - Pink Geranium;
Sewing Machine.

Head on over to the House of Cards Challenge Blog 
and take a look at all the beautiful inspiration!

Read over the rules, and then join us in the fun challenge.
