OWH Love Card

Good Monday Morning.  It's going to be a gorgeous day here and I can't wait to get outside to start some yard work.  No matter what occasion is upcoming, I still tend to make lots of "love" and "miss you" themed cards for our heroes to send home.  I just feel like they are the type of cards I'd want to receive if I were their family member.  There is nothing like knowing you are loved and missed.  
So here is one of those "love" cards I made last night.
I decided that this one didn't need a sentiment and even if it did, I could never have decided when to put it, so no sentiment.  As you can see I wanted to do black and white with a splash of color.  IRL the hearts are a bit more maroon than red and it is textured card stock. They were punched out with SU's heart punch.  I made the pearls with my Viva Pearl Pen.  I dug out an old corner punch for a little added zing and I embossed the white panel with SU's square lattice folder.
It's a simple card with, hopefully, a BIG message.  I'm happy with the way it turned out.  Most of the time what is in my head and my final product do not match, but this time it did.    
I wish you all a beautiful, sunny day. As always I want to take a minute to say thank you for spending some time here checking out my blog.   Bye for now - See you soon.
