It had to be you!




Hi everyone!

Look at the fun inspiration photo for the challenge at The Card Concept:



It was hard to decide which way to go on this...so many possibilities! I decided to concentrate on the wood grain, letters and colors.

The background is stamped with SU's Hardwood onto some craft paper. I backed that on real red card stock. The hearts are some card candy from a friend, and I adhered them onto one of Papertrey's circle scribbles. On top of that I added the word "love."

The sentiment," It had to be you," is one I HAD to buy, as I LOVE that song!  Harry Connick Jr. sang that in "When Harry Met Sally," one of my favorite movies.(check the song out here) I thought it went well with this card.

Head on over to The Card Concept and check out all the cards..so many great ideas..and better yet, play along!!




Paper: SU real red, black, pink, craft
Ink: SU black
Stamps: SU Hardwood, Printworks Collection
Dies: Papertrey circle scribbles, Lawn fawn stitched journal, Lil inker stitched rectangles, Little Yellow Bicycle word die
