Back to normal

Well holiday is over, that week really flew by and the weather is a little warmer although windy here in sunny Cheshire. One of the joys of being home though is that all my crafty stuff is here so the dining table is once again hidden under a mountain of card, glue, glitter etc. much to the cats delight as she loves sitting on just the exact bit of card or ribbon that you want. It's an uncanny gift that most cats possess. Anyway in-spite of the cat I do have a card to share with you.

The main image is a penny black stickeroo mounted onto white card that I have tinted the edges of with some red ink this is then mounted onto black card. The heart was made using a Fiskars template which I then embossed using my Cuttlebug and edged with red stickles. The flowery background paper is from the Paper Cellar pad black and white, the heart and x design I made myself using a Hero Arts alphabet set that I inked and stamped onto white card before cutting to size. These papers I have layered onto a red background and have then attached the heart with foam pads to create a little bit of dimension.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
