Happy Valentine's Day!

I am sharing the Valentine I sent to my BFF who is enjoying the warmth far away from frigid Wisconsin. I love using the positives and negatives of dies and the Sketch Heart from Simon Says Stamp works beautifully for that. I die cut it several times out of white and deep red to create this card. I also die cut the sentiment out of an alphabet die from Die-Versions. This is what the inside looks like:

One more sketch heart and a "friend" from Paper Smooches. I am finding I am using die cuts even more than stamps lately.

 I am entering this card in the Valentines challenge at Scrap and Craft and the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapper's Delights.

Another winning card design. This looks fantastic with the positive and negative used together.
