Cheery Lynn Two of Hearts for the Paper Players



Hi everyone!

Joanne has a sketch for us this week at The Paper Players:


 

I turned it and came up with this Valentine card:



I cut out some scalloped squares from Taylored Expressions Build a Tag 2 in red and black. Then I cut out some squares from an embossed sheet of paper for the centers. I backed all that on a strip of designer paper from my scrap box.

The star of the card is the pretty heart in the middle.

 It's from Cheery Lynn's Two of Hearts die set. The heart you see is the smaller one of the two. Then I added a Sweetheart in the center, also from Cheery Lynn, that says,"Love." I cut out the "you" from Cheery Lynn's Love gift envelope set to add at the bottom.




Hope you will join is this week at The Paper Players!

Have a great day!
