It's All About LOVE Countdown - Day 10

This card was made in response to a challenge on the consultant's artwork board on the CTMH website yesterday. To say that it's different is an understatement, and yet, there's something I like about it. I know I like the red, white, and black color combination, and the ribbon on the textured cardstock certainly says "touch me." Perhaps its appeal (to me, anyway) it is the fact that it's a little out of the norm.

Trivia: About 1 billion Valentine's Day cards are exchanged each year. It's the largest seasonal card-sending occasion of the year, next to Christmas.

I'm curious what the third most popular card-sending holiday is . . . Mother's Day, maybe? It's almost got to be.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy textured cardstock, Holiday Red and Black cardstock, Black and Holiday Red ink pads, Holiday Red marker, Blooming Flourishes, Love You, and In My Heart stamp sets, Retired CTMH Cranberry and Black gingham ribbon, Miscellaneous ribbon from Michaels.

This is so unique! I love it! It's good to work outside your comfort zone from time to time. Great job!
