Follow the chocolate

Isn't this an adorable stamp from Penny Black - it's appropriately called "sweet love".   I had to break out of the winter doldrums and start working up some valentine cards.   And, since I got a wonderful Doodlebug paper pack for Christmas from my BFF, I had to use my "new" item!   I think this is the first that I've used the heart doilies I've had in my stash for a while, too, so technically, they're new to me.  The heart dots at the top are candi-dots and the black heart border at the bottom is a diecut, of which I added white hearts to the empty spots to make it pop a bit more.   A few punched hearts added to the image and there you have it.   I love working with the red/black combo, as it turns out so striking.
