Just Add Ink Challenge #2

For the latest Just Add Ink challenge all you needed to do is work with hearts! Love is in the air that's for sure with Valentine's day only 12 more sleeps away!
I got this idea from my wonderful friend Heather. We were stamping together a while back and she had the idea of using ribbon for the hearts (seen in the latest Summer mini) and punching the hearts out at the bottom of her card! I liked it sooo much that I wanted to copy and so here is my take on the idea...
I also stamped some white card stock and stamped certain Life Definitions sayings on it then picked out what parts I wanted in some of my punched hearts!! I really like the effect, must try it again on a different shape!!

Set: Life Definitions
Ink: Real red and Basic black
Card: Basic black and Whisper white
Acc: Red and black gingham ribbon, polka dot real red ribbon, taffeta white ribbon, striped real red ribbon and heart punch

I love your ribbon hearts! And your 'Define Life' hearts! WOW. So stunning and creative. Great take on the challenge, thanks for playing at Just Add Ink!

Super-cute card! Always love the striking look of black, white and red together, and I'm a big fan of that versatile punch.

Very sweet Sharnee! I really like the idea of using the Life Definitions in your punched hearts - very effective! Thanks for playing!

This is really lovely. I've wanted to try this out since I saw it in the catalogue!! (putting ribbon behind the punched images) Your take on it is very creative. Love how you've used the appropriate sentiments from Life Definitions for the white hearts. Thanks for taking the time to join in the fun at Just Add Ink.

A lovely card Sharnee, I really must get some of that red gingham ribbon, a great job!

Just beautiful - it really stands out against the black cardstock.

I loved this idea when I saw it in the mini too, but I don't have the punch yet! Might have to add it to the list now though :)

Gorgeous card Sharnee!
