Black & Tan Valentine

I saw a challenge somewhere to create a Valentine card without using red or pink . . .so, here it is:

What I used:
Valentine Calligraphy stamp from Paper Inspirations
Onyx Black Versafine ink
Grungeboard Elements
Metallic Gold Adirondack Paint Dabber
Gold Cord
Double-Sided Tape
Foam Tape
Patterned Paper from 7 Gypsies Maison Pack
Suede Brown Light & Medium cardstock from Prism
Black Prismatics cardstock from Prism


How to:
Paint Grungeboard Heart with Metallic Gold Paint; set aside to dry
Stamp Valentine Calligraphy using Onyx Black ink on Suede Brown Light cardstock (I stamped on the non-textured side); trim down
Mount on Black cardstock with double-sided tape; tear bottom edge
Adhere to patterned paper
Wrap gold cord around patterned paper (I taped one end of the cord and then wrapped)
Attach Grungeboard Heart using Foam Tape
Adhere to Suede Brown Medium Card using Foam Tape


Ta-da! A Valentine Card without using pink or red.
