Love is in the Air - Blogger's Challenge #68

Sorry I have been MIA for the Blogger's Challenge so much lately. First it was vacation, then we had a surprise 75th and 80th birthday party for my Mom and Dad last weekend. Then two nights ago, I had a freak fall and cut my foot and possibly broke my big toe. I am now sporting a very fashion forward calf high boot that looks something like this. Pretty attractive, huh?

The challenge this week was to use this photo as inspiration for our project. I let the colors inspire me to create my card. I love black, white and red together anyway and I was eager to use my new stamps from Savvy Stamps. I think they are just the cutest!

Be sure to visit the other bloggers to see how they used the inspiration piece. You'll find them by clicking on the link in my sidebar.

Have a terrific weekend!






It's all about the details:
Card stock: Stampin' Up, Bazzill
Patterned Paper: DCWV Stack
Stamps: Savvy Stamps
Ink: Stampin' Up, Riding Hood Red, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Foam Squares, ribbon, crystal heart
Tools: SU punches
