CardzTV Color Challenge!

Cardz TV Ch# 23 "Color Challenge"
Make a card, layout, or craft project using RED, BLACK, and WHITE ONLY!
Starts: Fri, Jan 25
Ends: Thurs, Feb 7 @ Noon EST
Prize: 1 set of Cardz TV Stamps 

Here is my project for this challenge:

I love this card!  First of all, I love the combination of black & red!
The card is a 3x3 card, the white layer started out as a 3.25 inch card stock
then I used my FAVORITE Martha Stewart corner punch and straight punch.
It makes a beautiful background, don't you think?
The heart was cut with my Cricut at 1.5 inches.  There are tons of cartridges
that have hearts.  You can also use a punch.  Cut out 5 hearts and fold them in the center.
I ran them through the Cuttlebug to give them some dimension, but you don't have
to do that.  I then glued them together to create the fan affect.

The inside is finished off with another layer cut at 3.35 and some
tiny hearts from another Martha Stewart punch.  I added 4 pearls on the front
in the corners and Cardztv stamps - HAPPY DAYS!

Now it's your turn!

Come play with us!
