Happy Friday! I have to make this a quick one today because it's getting late here and I haven't started my house work yet. I don't want hubby to think that all I do is stamp the day away...LOL

I made today's card for the limited supply challenge. As soon as I read today's challenge it reminded me of a previous card that I had made using this stamp set. You can see that card here if you'd like.

The challenge was to create a card for someone you love using the colors: pink, red, white, or black. We could use any of these colors and we also had to include some sort of polka dots on our card.

I wanted to make my husband another Valentine's Day card (I wasn't happy with the one I made before). I know the sentiment around my heart image says *friends*, but I consider my husband to be my very best friend ;)

To make my card all I did was stamp the heart image red and then stamp the heart sentiment around it. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up. Then I layered my images using my SU large and small tag punches. I created my background using my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots embossing folder, but I only embossed about 1" of each edges and then I scored a line just above and below each embossed section.

I added a small piece of ribbon to the top of each image and I used a brad to hold it in place. My ribbon is from Offray.

Thanks so much for looking and I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I probably won't update again until Monday.
