Hearts, Hearts, Hearts #1

This card really doesn't have hearts but the other two do. I have been in a slump. My Inspiration has been missing in action. A very wise friend of mine told me to do a bunch of cards with the same layout different colors. Well, I am backwards. What I did was use the same colors, just different layouts. I took out a piece of DP that I have been HOARDING for ages. Then I (gasp) cut it up and did different cards with it. I picked out the CS that I thought would match and Voila!!!! 3 cards. I still have DP left so let's see if I will make more cards with it, at least it gave me a starting point and I like the results. The #2 and #3 cards below actually do have hearts on them. TFL!!!
For this card I wanted Polka Dots to accent the stripes so I used the little polka dot stamp I made by punching a bit of left over rubber (you know the stuff that is left over after trimming your stamps and mounting them) with a hole punch. I mounted it on the end of one of my calligraphy pens which makes it handy to grab when ever I get the urge to polka dot. I actually made 3 different sizes as I had 3 different size hole punches LOL!!
I also used my MS Scallop edge, SU Scallop punch, the white circle was cut with the Cricut. A piece of green ribbon and there you go.
