Dynamic Duos #36

Valentine's

I decided to play along with this week's Dynamic Duos black and red challenge with a dessert option of a Valentine's theme.  Was in the mood for a dramatic card and this fit the bill.

Pulled out my neglected PTI edger dies and went to work.  The bas of the card went quickly, but I fiddled forever with the embellishment options and their placement on the hearts.  I finally settled on one black and one white one embellishment, leaving the middle one blank.  Crazy how those embellishments cause me such grief at times - ever have that problem or is it just me LOL?

All three hearts on the card are crimped, but it is hard to see in the picture.  Going to have to figure out a way for crimping to show up a bit better in my photos, as many a time it gets washed out.

Enough of my woes.  Have a fabulous day and thanks for popping by :)

So funny you used your edger die, I was just thinking yesterday that I haven't used mine in ages. I love the simple sentiment on this card...the font is awesome.

Dawn Easton said...

Oh this is awesome! I can see your crimping ;) Funny how some elements just aren't picked up with a camera as well.
You rocked this colour challenge!

This is beautifully dramatic, Marisa! I love that edge! And I know what you mean about taking a lot of time with a "little" part of the card. But those little embellishments are perfectly placed and make the card say WOW!

I think you made a great choice with your embellishments, just the right touch. I have a problem stopping with the embellishments...once you've gone too far you know it immediately! Am I right?
