Hearts

When Dear Hubby first saw this card he said, "This is a good card from a woman to a man." Therefore, I'm calling it a "Menly Card"! Thanks Hubby for your "stamp" of approval!
Color Throwdown's challenge CTD27 for this week is to use Real Red, Basic Black & Brocade Blue. What these colors came to mind was a patriotic card at first, but as I was reading other challenges, I incorporated Mojo Monday's sketch challenge week 71 & Our Creative Corner's challenge Crazy for Hearts as well.
I used several heart stamps for this card. The red hearts on the Basic Black CS are heat embossed with Firecracker Red embossing powder. Then I used a smaller heart stamped in White Craft so that the black background wouldn't be so dark. I struggled with the white cardstock square, but at the end I sponged it with Real Red to reduce the starkness of the white against the other colors.
