Color Challenge #41

Time for another challenge! I have to say that I absolutely love playing along with these challenges, and I find the best bit is checking out all the other submissions. I also love leaving comments and reading all the comments left on my blog, it makes me feel so loved! So love was the theme of my card this week. My husband and I don't usually "do" valentines day, but he had to work last night and he is still not home. He has worked 18 hours so far and I think he will need a little love when he does get home, so here is his card:
This card looks so much better IRL, but I just could not get a good photo of it. It must be all the silver. I started with a ruby red base (no riding hood red here). Then I stamped the fine lace background with versamark onto the basic gray c/s and embossed in silver. I don't know why I went to all of this effort, because then I covered it all up with these wacky strips. The white was randomly stamped with images from Carte Postal set. I used the big deal alphabet set and silver ink to stamp the letters on black c/s and the heart is from the polka dot punches set and last but not least the red rose is from the embrace life set. It was fun doing this card, I hope Daniel likes it. Happy Valentines Day xo
