XO Love

**This is my second post for today.  For my CAS-ual Fridays/Hero Arts post please scroll down or click here!"


Hello!  I'm popping in with a second post today - Monday and Tuesday were very productive days in the Craft Cave.  I played along with quite a few challenges and got a bunch of special orders done so I'm feeling very virtuous!  :)  This card uses the sketch from RetroSketches and the colours from Dynamic Duos.  I'm continuing my love affair with Stampin' Up's Basic Grey.  It just makes all the other colours pop so beautifully!  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Black) Pacon, (Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Jan 13 KOM - All Hearts & Love) Unity Stamp Co
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Double-Ended Banner) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  (Beetle Black assortment) Doodlebug

Love those hearts - they look like they are floating down. And you're right the gray makes the colors pop so beautifully!

Now you're making me regret that I didn't add basic grey to my most recent SU order! :P What a perfect interpretation of the sketch.

Nothing quite so awesome as getting loads done! I know exactly the virtuous feeling you're talking about...I occasionally get that from having cleaned the bathroom BUT I prefer the mad cardmaking binges!
I really really love the collage stamp with the red hearts popped up - and that pink banner is just the right touch of somethin'somethin' :)

I can't figure out how you do this - so many beauties in such a short time. Do you even sleep?! This is so dear, my dear! Hearts are my fav, and this card has mine!
