Raise the Bar Challenge #4

WOW ... is it Friday again already???   That means it's time for another Raise The Bar Challenge.  

We would like to thank everyone who played in our challenge last week ... we are thrilled with the participation and hope you share your creativity with us again this week.

Today the Bar Tenders challenge you to use HEARTS on your project.  Hard to believe it's almost Valentine's Day ... are you ready???

Here is a little creation I made using my Nestabilities Scallop Heart die for the base card.  The red panel was embossed using the Cuttlebug heart embossing folder than diecut using the largest Nestabilities Classic Heart die.  The sentiment sticker comes from the Crafty Secrets Valentine Love sticker sheet ... as do the little rose stickers.  The only other addition are the Hobby Lobby red dotted swiss ribbon ties and Stampendous red Diamond Dots in each scallop of the heart.

For more inspiration, please visit my fellow Bar Tenders shown below:

Anita ... Sparkle ... Suzi ... Audrey ... Joni (Head Bar Tender)

Thanks for your visit and for those in the path of this incoming snow storm ... please be safe and stay warm!  I'm staying in, well at least until its time to get the snow blower out that is!!  LOL!!
