 Hello every one, There is a new challenge up at  AAA cards  , with  One inch strip  as our game and an optional twist of a small stamps.   For my card I have used a heart stencil by Paper Smooches for my bg and the sentiment from the stamp set by MFT's Boss babe   . I used Spun sugar Distress ink and light hand of picked raspberry. Also, the stamping is done with Memento Nautical blue ink (it looks black in photos) and heat embossed.
