The end of Love!

At least in the cardmaking sense........the last one for a while I think.
I have been introduced to Stampotique stamps on Rinda's wonderful art blog.........I love them........but I do not yet own one.....they seem to be very expensive in the UK........I will eventually acquire one!!
But now I am very excited that Stampotique have started a challenge blog.....and even better.......the first challenge each month does not need to be a Stampotique stamp.....but this month it does need to be 'love' inspired.....which this card is.
I have used one of my new Crafty Individuals stamps.........distressed with red ink.......layered onto torn gold and red card.....and then onto some distressed manuscript paper........some SU ribbon with rub on letters........and finished off with some die cut hearts.
And you know me.....can always find some other challenges as well.....The Pink Elephant Challenge want 'ribbon'........Cupcake Crafts want 'keep it simple' [and for me this is definately in that category!!]........Creative Inspirations want 'red and black'.....Daring Cardmakers want 'hearts'........and The Little Paper Shop want 'distressing'.

So many challenges, so little time..I think you take multi-tasking to a whole new level! You know those photos people do where you get a close-up or a side-on view? Please think about giving it a try so we can really see all your amazing layering :)
