Blossom Heart

Black and white with a pop of red is always a great combination, especially with Valentine's day approaching.  
 
This wonderful Blossom Heart is a digi from Anonymous Stamps where all the digis are free.  And the card is headed straight for the Anonymous Stamps January Challenge - Anything Goes
The card base is a shiny red paper which shows through the heart punched border at the bottom. I colored some of the flower petals on the digi with black marker and added red centers here and there.  The gingham ribbon is self adhering which made it super easy to apply.    The sentiment is a CTMH stamp.  And a little red bling finished it off.   Well, not quite.  It's back to the craft table for this card.  My mother asked me today for a special anniversary card for my Aunt and Uncle who will soon be celebrating their 40th anniversary.  So I'll be adding shiny red numbers popped in the center of the heart and an anniversary sentiment on the inside. 


I'll also be entering these challenges:
