Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Blog Hop Day 2

Day 2!  I'm still excited, how about you?
Did you see the other posts yet? Jessica is ahead of me on the list today.
 My card today is very different from the one I posted yesterday.
Don't you think?
I used a small red rubber image of Couple on Bench, just released at CHA. I stamped it on the Heart die from PPRS in black ink. On the black card stock underneath I used the PPRS stamp Swirls ATC with Versamark. Then I dusted a little Macropearl PearEx on that. It's very suttle, even in reality. I came across an ancient corner punch, that I thought fit the theme, and used that. I layered black on pink, then black again and ran a light pink polka dot ribbon around it. The stamped heart went on top of all that The card is the same pink paper as the mat and the heart, and I just added little metal photo corners that I picked up at either Hobby Lobby or Michaels.
So now I'm done being excited, but you can continue on and visit Heidi's blog.

  9. This is lovely. I like the couple on the bench image and your black and pink color scheme - so vintage! Reminds me of some black and pink table linens I received along with my Aunt's china from the 1950s!

  10. I love the simple layout of your card! I also liked the color you chose. Sometimes, red, pink, and white are over-done, so its nice to see a romantic piece with no cliched romantic colors.
