Let's Talk!

Hi, Friends!

Happy Friday to you!  How are you doing after the holidays?  Are things settling down and back to normal?

I found some extra time today to enter a fun challenge over at Double D Challenge!  Lots of fun prizes to be had for they are celebrating their third anniversary!  I just love looking at the yummy inspiration photo!  I decided to use one of my  stamp sets from Precious Remembrance.  I'm thinking it would be great for a Valentine card since it has hearts on it.  And, here is my card...

Another view of my card...

I started with a white card base and paired it with a black panel that was die cut using a Mama Elephant die.  The red glittery hearts were made using a heart punch.  Washi tape under the glitter strips at the top and bottom.  Twine added for interest.  And, sequins from Paper Sweeties to finish the card.  Well, that's all for now.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Take care!
