1st up I found the Dynamic Duos # 36 Challenge which was to use the colours Red & Black with an optional theme of Valentines:
The sketch challenge that I found to base my card on was The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge # 176:
To make this card, I used red, black & white card stock; design paper from Recollections 6x6 paper pad - With Love, a Spellbinder's Nestability and a Stampin Up Sentiment which I heat embossed with blushing pink onto the Nestability. I am pleased with how this card turned out. Looking at it, it appears that the Nestability is not quite centered but it actually is on the the banners which aren't quite centered. Unfortunately, I tried to re-center (is that a word?) the banners but it was glued on very firmly and if I try to shift it, I would ruin the design paper underneath. Ah, well, we can't all make perfect cards now can we?
Patrice from The Old Back Porch has invited me to play along on her blog this week so I'm linking this post up on her blog.
