Fun Card to Share With You for FRIDAY MASHUP CHALLENGE

Hey Y'all - you trying to keep cool in this oppressive heat?  It is awful here in Texas - with the humidity, the feels like temp for today was 112 degrees!!  OUCH.

Here is a cute card I made for a friend of mine.  She was without her mojo and needed a card to swap in her card group.  So I designed up one for her and I think it came out really cute.  It is an anniversary or a wedding card with congratulations stamped inside.  But this design can be used for other cards as well.

I used the First Edition DSP and aged it with my sponge with daffodil delight and some early espresso.  I ripped a few places and rolled it up a bit and sponged some extra on it.  It looks like an old newspaper that is torn and wearing away on the edges.  I used my big shot and the embossed hearts embosslet to cut and emboss two hearts - real red and black.  On the red heart I put the 1/8 inch taffeta black ribbon with the white stripes on the edges.  The black heart needs the red taffeta ribbon 1/8 inch but I don't have it.

I used the Artistic Etchings stamp set for the Amour on crumb cake card stock, using early espresso ink, then punched it out with the modern label punch and sponged the edges.  I used a cordory crumb cake button (from clearance rack) on the left of the label punched word.  My inside "congratulations was stamped with early espresso from the Swirls & Curls Verses hostess set (I think it is retired).

The base of the card is white with a black layer underneath the First Edition DSP.

Please let me know what you think of my original creation, won't you?  I really appreciate your comments.

Inky fingers y'all!!
