Cookin' up some love

Welcome Back!  Happy Friday and Happy New Year!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter. 

Here is my card for your inspiration:
This is my Valentine's Day card for my cousin.  He is part Italian and I know he will get a kick out of this adorable little chef with his spaghetti and meatball.  So cute!
I had saved this heart die cut border negative in my bits and pieces stash as it was just so perfectly cut and I knew it could be used for something.  Well, this turned out to be just the something!  The little hearts around my sentiment were made with red Nuvo drops.  I saw someone do it recently and thought it was a genius idea!!  Wish I remember where I saw it so I could give them credit.

What a cute card. The little chef is adorable, and I like the use of hearts on the red strip! Very nicely done. Thank you for sharing your delightful card with Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Your Italian chef is so cute! I'm trying to decide if he's singing That's Amore, or saying, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing!" :)

The brown patterned papers are perfect to go with his meatball, and I love that you were able to use that heart scrap!

Thanks for joining us for our Cut it Up for our Hearts challenge!
