Scribble and Scrap challenge time!!!!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend so far!!!! 
Mine has been very quiet so far.... Not feeling very well, still a bit under the weather...

Today, a new Scribble and Scrap challenge begins!!!!

As usual, there will be a Random drawn winner, who will get a £15 voucher to spend in the Scribble and Scrap shop. 
But if the Random drawn winner has used a product from the prize will be a £20 voucher instead of a £15 voucher.
Also each of the Top Three will win a £5 voucher to spend at
very generous, don't you think?

As you may already know, it is ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES!!!  easy peasy! my team mates and I have been very busy creating beautiful cards for your inspiration, so don't forget to also check them out!!!

My DT project for this week is a Love/Valentine's card....
I don't usually just make Valentine's cards, as I like to make cards that also work for anniversaries or just because...

For the card I used two digis that you can find in the Scribble and Scrap shop,
  Vintage Steampunk Key and Vintage Steampunk Key hole.
I love the vintage look on this digis....
I glued them to strong card stock and fussy cut them (including the little holes!), as I wanted to put them on foam pad, raised from the background.

I've only used two colours (excluding the white), and I tried to give it a bit of a vintage-look, with the paper distressing and inking (used Tim Holtz distress tool and Tim Holtz distress ink pad in Old Paper).

The papers I've used are from Forever Friends black and gold (the floral paper) and Crate Paper DIY shop (the music sheet).
I hand stitched in dark red/maroon colour around the background paper.

I used a piece of red cardstock cut with Sissix Scallop scallop circle die, to just pop-out behind the music sheet, sentiment and digis.
 I also used half a scallop circle die in white, which I embossed with a heart embossing folder from Tri-boss.
I created the sentiment myself (I love sentiments and quotes!!!).
The brackets framing the sentiment are new. I got them as part of an alphabet set I got from American Crafts in TK Maxx.

The red hearts are a die-cut from Sissix Bigz die.
The white ribbon is from Do Crafts.
Red rhinestones in the coner are from local shop.

I really hope you like my black and red LOVE creation!!!!
