It's time for another What If Wednesday? challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week is a Designer's Choice Challenge, and I am the designer!!  Since it is the Valentine's Day season, I chose to challenge you to add some hearts to your projects.  Here is my card for your inspiration:
 I started out by stamping the "Love Stencil" stamp for my background.  The heart actually has the word "love" underneath it, but I cut it apart so I could use the heart by itself.  Here's a tip for you, I only stamped the top, bottom and side rows of the card since the center portion would be covered by the next layer.  Then I realized that I needed to stamp the middle heart on the second from bottom row, so I added that in.  On the middle layer, I stamped the "Sheet Music" stamp.  For the sentiment, I used markers to color on the rubber since I wanted the letters to be black and the heart red.  But, it didn't stamp dark enough for me, so I used Sharpie markers in matching colors to make it more solid.  and I love how bold it turned out.  On the inside I stamped the "Valentine's" stamp.
I hope you get a chance to play along, I can't wait to see what you come up with.  And don't forget to had some hearts!
