Hello My Love - Card

Hey there friends!  I've got a new card to share with you today.  I completed this one last night and planned to share it early this morning but omgosh.....I woke up feeling like death.  Thankfully my DH stayed home to help with my grandson and I'm starting to feel better now.  (Thanks honey, love you)

Okay now onto my card ;D

I actually made this card to enter into the Simon Says Black, White and another color challenge but I missed the deadline (hate when that happens).  I chose to use black, white and red.  Boy this was harder to do than I thought it would be.  I guess because I love playing with the whole box of crayons and love loads of contrast.
For this card I started by cutting Card #2, Layers from the Sentimentals Cricut Cartridge from white cardstock.  Next I cut black cardstock for my base and stamped it with a Metallic Pearl Dabber.  I believe the stamp I used is Inkadinkado.  I stamped the white cardstock with two shaded of red Colorbox ink and a Recollections stamp.  Then I inked it with Tim Holtz distress inks in Fired Brick and Festive Berries.  I also ran it through the sewing machine to add an extra little detail.  I added some glitter embossed swirls for a little framing and doodled around the edges.  I finished this off with some inked ribbon, a charm, sticker letters and a heart cut with Cricut Accent Essentials.  I also ran it through the swiss dots embossing folder.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and WELCOME to my newest bloggie friend Mallrat!!
