Creative Card Crew-

Here's a fun card...don't ya love the B/W & red combo for Valentine's Day? This week at Creative Card Crew our lovely hostess Linda has challenged us to 'Punch It'! So grab your punches and play along!

Stamps: Inkadinkado (heart)
Papers: SU! cs., Doodlebug Design
Ink: SU! black
Other: clear emb powder, nesties, sizzix swirl,
MS trefoil heart punch.

I used my new border punch from ABC Toys & Crafts in a new way, layered!
I really like how the red shows throught on the hearts!! The white panel is sandwiched between the red & black nesties since the heart wouldn't fit on the smaller size nestie!

Checkout the rest of the Crew and their fabulous creations...

Here are the challenges:
Creative Card Crew~use a punch.
Raise the Bar~new...that would be my heart stamp.
Theme Thursday~hearts
Unscripted Sketches~sketch.
One Stop Craft~fancy edges.
Color Chef~colors.
Gingersnaps Creations~emb. powder.
