BBTB/Sweethearts/Stamp

Our host for BBTB2 challenge this week is that fantastically talented designer, Marina. She has chosen the Sweethearts cart, and asked us to design with the stamp die cut. There were so many ways to go with this cut, and I sat staring at the sample layouts for a long time and couldn't decide what to do. And then suddenly I just snapped up one design and went with it. There is, I have to admit, a lot of red and black and white goin' on here... The stamp die is on the right and a bit caught up in the overall colors. I just sort of ignored the word "love" which is cut out on the stamp die, but I added the word onto a punched white embossed heart. That word is cut from the Calligraphy cart. I love the style of this cut. So delicate and yet it says it all.
Please stop by the BBTB2 site and take a peek at the lovely designs the DT created.

It's been a while since I've been to visit, part because I have been out of town and part because I've been super busy. I can't believe all that I've missed. All of your creatations are gorgeous. Have a great weekend!
