For Always Valentine

I really like working with black and white, because it can be so versatile and allows an array of other colors to be added in. That's why I love the new For Always papers in the Close To My Heart Spring Idea Book available in just a few days!!!

I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week with a little hidden surprise! I chose the Tulip red as my pop of color for the challenge at Dynamic Duos. It is a retired color now, but is still one of my favorites, because it is not a super bright red or too dark!

{Edit: I am also entering this in Color My Heart's Color Dare challenge this week; black & white with a pop of color!}






All products are Close To My Heart. I've incorporated some older ribbons; Tulip red rosettes and Cotton Candy pink pom-pom, black glitter buttons available in the Spring Idea Book and the stamped sentiments are from the Whooo's Your Valentine Kit only available this month!
