Signed, Sealed, Delivered

This morning I am sharing a bright and funky Valentine that I created last night for this week's Mix It Up Monday challenge over at Stamp TV.  For this challenge, Tami Mayberry asked us to create a card inspired by one of the designer papers in the True Love patterned paper pack shown here:

Can you tell where I pulled my inspiration from?  You guessed it - that yummy black, white, pink and green gingham!  I thought this would make such a fun color combo!  To create my card, I created many layers using black and white card stock and designer paper from My Mind's Eye - Ooh La La For Her 6x6 paper pad.  The stamps I used are from Gina K. Designs Sung From The Heart set, designed by Rupa Shevda.  I added a top and bottom border to the card with a K&Co. adhesive paper ribbon - Brenda Walton Sweet Talk collection. I cut out hearts in two sizes using my Scalloped Hearts Nestabilities and ran each through the Cuttlebug with a different embossing folder.  To finish the card, I added some sheer black and white ribbon, some pink gems, and a tiny puffy fabric heart that I had laying around.  I wasn't too sure about this card as I was making it, but once it was done, I really like it - hope you do too!

Have a creative day!
