Penny's Challenges #22 - Hearts/Love & MORE Exciting News

It time again for another Penny's Challenge and this time it's all about "Hearts & Love".  Being a lover of vintage style, that is the direction I've taken with my creation.

My base card is kraft and the designer paper used here is Fancy Pants (Vintage Valentine).  I've used Nestabilities classic & scallop heart dies, red grosgrain ribbon, Hero Arts half pearls & red Stickles.  

I look forward to seeing what you create with this week's challenge.  Please be sure to attach a direct link to your creation on Mr. Linky at the Penny's Challenge Blog and if uploading to other online galleries, please use the keyword "PC22"! 

And, for added inspiration, be sure to check out the creations by my co-team members listed below:
* Alison - Hairy Harry's Craft
* Boni - Bonibleaux Designs
* Kim - Memories in Thyme
* Cheryl - CherCroppin's Stamp Pad
