Black Hearts?!

I'm having a ball making Valentines!  I've cut the MB Twirled Heart Border a couple times from black cardstock to use the outline which left me with unused black hearts.  They looked beautiful in the outline cut from Heidi Swapp wide glitter tape, but hearts in black could be thought of negatively & I didn't want that. Decided to try Frosted Lace Stickles on one & sure enough, I think that does the trick.  I'd love to hear what you think.
I inlaid the die using a piece of Coordinations glimmer white cardstock--so pretty! The "happy" die cut from the Ellen Hutson set Merry & Bright is stacked 5 high using my favorite invisible Perfect Paper adhesive & a cheap brush. The sentiment is from a discontinued MFT set that came to me unpackaged, but might be called "Love U".  Fun to make a tall, narrow card for a change & gives me another entry for Ellen Hutson Mix It UpChouxchoux Valentines/Hearts, CropStop & The Playground.  Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  20. Oh my Greta, I think it's a great idea to save all the scraps (says a gal of Scottish descent - hehe). And I love what you've done with them and added all the sparkle! I always think black is so elegant and really works for a love theme, which is what Valentine's Day is all about! It's a beautiful card, and I love to see that you've been a busy gal and have a wonderful style! Warm hugs!
