I hope your having a great Wednesday.  It is very very cold here.  I can't wait for winter to be over.  But in the mean time I have been have alot of crafty fun making Valentine Cards.  This was a day I always looked forward to in elementary school and still do to this day.

The card I have to share with you is so fun, it used some of my Hypnotic (red) Black Magic paper from Core'dinations.  Here is a pic.

I used the Red, Black Magic paper and using my Cuttlebug machine I debossed the hearts onto the card using the black side up so I could distress it for the red to show through.  I then used the red side of the Black Magic and also with my Cuttlebug machine I debossed the black middle strip using a portion of another embossing folder just to get the word "Romance". I then distressed this too.  Added some red glittered ribbon, and some red rhinestone hearts.  Here is a close up.

I am so glad you stopped by and hope you stay warm if you are where it is so cold.
