Sharon's Challenge and Beate's Challenge

Sharon's Challenge:
I wanted to play Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge #18 - TEAR IT UP (ssnotime18)! I love the look of torn paper on cards. It gives it an elegant feel!
So, as I continue to make valentine cards, I decided to go with the red, black and white color combo. I also used another silver metal wire heart that I made. On this heart, I added some red seed beads and a bit of black ribbon.
I hope someone will think this would make a nice card for their sweety!!
Beate's Challenge:
And Beate had a really cool sketch on her blog too that I really wanted to make!! So I did it too!!
I really love the Beautiful Blooms stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I had yet to use these cute flowers so I thought I'd use them for Beate's challenge.
I didn't have a brad that I really liked to go with the sentiment so I got to wondering if I used my Versamark pen and dabbed on little dots, could I cover them with white embossing powder?? I tried it and I think it turned out pretty good. What do you think??
Well, thanks for visiting my blog. I have a million cards and projects that I have finished and can't wait to share with you!!! Make sure you come back soon!!
