Loving Hearts

Today is new challenge day at OSAAT!! We have an easy but fun challenge for you this week;
That means you have to use white plus ONE other colour. Body colour doesn't count but BLACK DOES!
This week's challenge is sponsored by Creative Craft World. They are giving 3 Promarkers to one lucky participant that enters using one of our images. Those with non-Stichy Bear digis will be entered in to a draw for $3.00 in our store.
I chose to use RED as my colour this week. I had to take a picture as well as scan my card with my scanner because I just couldn't get all the red to show up, and some actually came out looking black. I have uploaded both images so you can see it is all White & Red.

Here is a close-up of the "starburst" surronding some of the hearts on this paper. This is the reason I chose this digital paper pack. I fell in love with this specific paper.

I sure hope you will be around to join in the fun this week.
