You can accent with black or white if you need to. I’m also entering this layout into Sketches in Thymes’ Open Challenge #4.

Valentine’s card

This card is based on a sketch by Card Patterns on the Sketches in Thyme blog for their challenge this week. I combined it with challenge 85 on Scrap Whispers, which is to create a layout or card using red and black, include a heart and add glitter. For this card, I used Webster’s Pages’ Hollywood Vogue and Garden Gala Papers as well as their trim. The scrolls are from Maya Road, but I cut them to the shape and size I wanted, then added stickles for the glitter. The brads are by Kaiser. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the scallop towards the bottom of the card and distress ink on all the paper edges. The hearts were hand cut.
