Blogging Challenge #5 Challenge rules & example

My blogging group is ready for the next challenge... and I am the host!! The cards must be posted on January 31, 2009 to their blogs and voting should begin on February 1st. I am excited because we are past snow and winter wonderland stamping and images. Our next challenge is to create a VALENTINE's day card for the one you love (whether it is your spouse, your child, your parent, your significant other... whoever it is!).

These are the rules:

1. You must use at least TWO (2) hearts on your card (more is fine, and they don't have to match).
2. You must use at least TWO (2) shades of red OR a red and a pink.
3. There must be some type of bling or glitter.

This is my example and I'll repost it on the 31st. I used a sheet of patterned paper I have had for YEARS. The hearts on the pp are embossed and covered in glitter. I used a sketch from Lauren Meader. The heart stamp and Love sentiment are actually from a cheap set I got (don't know where) that is really for mother's day, father's day, etc. I used bazzill red cs for the strip and white paper I had embossed with my cuttlebug Stylized Flowers folders. Then, I stamped the hearts in CTMH Holiday Red, cut and matted on bazzill red cs and popped them up.

I stamped the sentiment in Staz-on black ink b/c the pp was VERY slick. I even had to go back and heat set it later.

This turned out great. OK I'm going to write this challenge down so I can join in. With school being closed and one daughter being sick I haven't had much stamping time. Here's the motivation I need.
