My First Mojo Monday Challenge!

This is this week's Mojo Monday Challenge. I used the I (Hearts) Hearts stamp set as well as Love You Much . I'm not sure why I chose these colours, but thought they would work well. The card was my own and the ink is Stampin' Up! Basic Black. Here are the steps of what I did.

I used the dotted heart from the I (Heart) Heart to do some background hearts with the Basic Black ink. What I also found very useful, since my starter kit arrived was the Stampin' Scrub, to clean the stamps. It has one side where you spray it with Stampin' Mist (a cleaning liquid) and rub the stamp, then you can dry it on the other side, which is dry. Have a look!
 This is how the stamp with Black in on it.
 This is the side to scrub it on, with the mist already on.
This is the side where you wipe it dry, so to speak!

Back to the card now!

Then I stuck the pink backing in the centre of the card and stamped the Love you much stamp on pink and mounted it on black. I carefully cut round the flower, I'm starting to like this effect, as it makes the main stamp stick out a little!

Then I used some black ribbon to stick the tiny hearts and friend hearts on, I had a small heart punch but I hand cut the bigger friend heart.

Then finally I stuck the two small hearts and voila'....

Let me know what you think, any feedback welcome...leave a comment!
I will most probably give this to my best friend in Malta for Valentine's Day...I'm sure she will love it!
