You Make My Heart Sing / CTO #98

My husband came home with that awful flu Friday. Went to the Dr. on Sunday and got some Tamiflu.
He's getting slowly better, but bad news I'm coming down with it. I will try to keep up with my posts and comments but not making any promises.

We have a new challenge for you at Celebrate The Occasion - make a Valentine card with ribbon.

Please stop by the blog and check out all the fantastic inspiration and leave a little love for the design team!!

For my card I decided to veer away from the traditional red and pink and instead went black and white with one pop of red for a little punch.

Supplies used: card stock - cream; patterned paper - Orchestra by 7gypsies; stamp - Inkadinkado; ink - Jet Black Archival Ink; word stickers - Authentique; ribbon - Michaels; heart rhinestone - $ bin at JoAnn's.

One word-BEAUTIFUL !! Every element you used on this card makes it extra special. Your use of black and white with the pop of red on the heart is the perfect touch for this creation.
