Dies R Us Challenge Time

Hello All...
Well here we are at the start of a new month in 2018 and of course
it's the month of LOVE!!  With that being said, there's a new challenge
at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog and the theme is:

FOR THE ONE I LOVE

I have created a card that will be hubby's Valentine's Day Card.
He's a pretty simple, easy going guy so I know he'll be KIND when he sees my hand drawn heart border!  LOL


The dies I have used on today creation are:
Tutti Designs - Dies - Nesting Stitched Hearts

After die cutting my heart frame from bright red heavy card stock, I
adhered it to a scrap piece of pink roses designer paper.
The white heart is popped up with dimensional tape and as stated above,
the heart edging is hand drawn hearts ... obviously I was
real precise lol!
I die cut the forever die twice ... 1 black & 1 white so I could
'shadow' that part of the sentiment.
Easy Peasy and perfect for my easy going hubby!

Challenges to share in:
Mod Squad Challenge - LOVE
Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge #339 - He LOVES me, He LOVES me not

If you hadn't said, I wouldn't have guessed your hearts were hand drawn. The doodle look is very popular and I do like doodles! Beautiful dies. Love the highlighted "forever" and, look, you used up some more designer paper! My hubby is very easy going, too, and he's getting a very easy going Valentine.

What a wonderful collection of dies used on this card, and those hand-drawn hearts make this card so personal too! I really like how those pretty roses look peeking out from behind the hearts too! SO pretty!
