A card that killed 2 challenges with one stone!

Hi all!

I've been MIA for almost a month! I can't believe it's been that long since I've posted anything...guess these past few weeks have been busier than I thought! But, alas, I got to play today! And maybe the long break helped fuel the fun b/c I enjoyed making the card immensely! :)

For this card, I used two different challenges. I started with the great sketch from the CPS site. It's a clean look and I love that look! Here's the sketch:
And I then combined this challenge with the fun challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. So, I got a great sketch and the "penguin suit" means I can only use black and white...yes--that's right up my alley! LOVE it!

Here's my card:
I started out by embossing a 4.25x5.5 piece of white cardstock using the cuttlebug swirls embossing folder. I cut it into 3rds and then added black ribbon. I used a label from sizzix and stamped the sentiment in black, embossed it, and added a few tiny rhinestones. Easy card to make--but it looks so elegant. Had I not had to stick to only white and black, I think the hearts would've been red or a mix of red and silver but I still like this look.

Thanks for stopping by!
