A Valentine With Two Colors Challenge - Take Two

Something strange just happened and my post went public before I wanted it to.  So I hope you're reading my post with the photos in it.

I recently saw a card designed by fellow demonstrator Sharon Field and wanted to create my own take on it.  I received the stamp set for free from Stampin' Up! and it was waiting to be inked up.

I normally would not choose to combine red and blue for a Valentine's Day card.  However, the Twitterpated designer series paper lends itself perfectly to the occasion.  And it fits the bill for the SUO Challenge.  As in Sharon's card, I sanded the dsp after embossing it, but it doesn't really give the effect that her card did.  I'll have to try it again with another type of dsp.

"Speaking" of, I'd better get off this computer and get the kids to bed.  Thursday I've got a morning stamp camp and an evening stamp club meeting.  Lots to do tomorrow to complete my preparations - this would include laundry and cooking!

Stamps: Take it to Heart
Paper: Twitterpated dsp, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Island Indigo
Ink:  Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Big Shot, Hearts Collection Framelits, Petals a Plenty textured impressions embossing folder, Vintage Wallpaper textured impressions embossing folder, White Satin ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sanding Block

Happy Stamping!
