Love Heart - Red, White, and Gray

This card started with a scrap of ribbon and a new "love" die.  The red part was easy.  Then I tried several different combinations for the heart background and the card base.  I'm happy with the bold effect of the patterns and colors.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) pure poppy (red), a tiny dotted print from Pink Paislee pen pals 6 x 6" pad, and the polka dot print from PTI smokey shadow (dark gray) pattern pack.
  • Ribbon is 3/4" chevron twill by May Arts.  The red border is card stock, not ribbon. 
  • Die is My Favorite Things heart full of love set.
