a CARDS BLOG challenge

I have never played in one of the Cards Blog challenges. There is always a time for firsts! The challenge was to make a valentine card without using red or pink! That way it could be a card that you could use at any time of the year!
Well, here's what I came up with!
I used some 12 x 12 paper by Making Memories that I bought some time ago. I love black and white, and I also loved that this paper had "holes" in it so that it could be layered and you could see bits of color through some of the flower petals. I broke up a sentiment from Technique Tuesday, Ali Edwards, Loving Words....I thought it worked! I love orange and this blue color together, one of my favorite combinations! I added some orange bling to the centers of a few of the flowers to hopefully bring out the orange ink of the words!
Well this is the second post for today, so I'm going to keep it short. I want to go have some ice cream and watch TV!
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
