LIM_054 - CAS OLW Valentine's

I've made a valentine's card AND submitting to both LIM Challenge 54 (stripes) and OLW 78 (circles).




3 "stripes" have been embossed on;  very subtle, I know!  I had to a closeup photo to show 'em.

Circles are more obvious: punched out and the dots on the DSP.  The hole is actually Susan's idea and I quote:

you CAN punch/die-cut a circle out of the front of your card. That's not adding a layer. 

So punch I did! and it's still one layer.

I sponged around the hole on my first attempt and it just looked 'dirty'.  I'm sticking to the simplicity of this one.  For good measure, I added a little bow - Stampin Up's Baja Breeze seam binding to match the sentiment; gotta love SU coordination. :)

Hubby will love this one.  He better!
