Black, White, Red

Black, White, and Red is the color challenge at Bloggers Challenge. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, a "love" card seemed appropriate. The background of black and white papers has been floating around in the back of my head for some time now. Today was the day to use the idea. I used the large and small baroque Bigz Dies to cut the center focus for my card. In the smaller panel I die cut the word love and a keyhole. I used pumice stone distress ink along the edges of the white and red die cuts. The white was embossed using a texture fade and then I put rock candy stickles over the raised parts. On the red I stamped music notes. The key was also die cut and then covered with silver stickles. I think I know just the person to give this card to.
