My card ended up on the bold and graphic side, though that was far from my initial intent.  Crazy how you can end up in a totally different direction than you started out on when making a card LOL!  My stash of heart sequins from Pretty Pink Posh where screaming shaker card, and also prompted me to go with one of my favorite colour combinations of red, black and white.  Such a bold, dramatic colour combination - love it!  I flipped the orientation of Chupa's Saturday Sketch from a month ago, dug out my black and white washi tape, and voila, my card was born.  Definitely not my "normal" style, but I like it :)

Black, white, red; hearts and stripes; sequins - the equation adds up to one answer: GORGEOUS!! The Lil'Inker heart die...I think it may need to join my collection...
