Inspired By Challenge #5 & Heart2Heart

The first Heart2Heart challenge of 2012 is to use a stamp that you've never inked up before!  We got this set at the Toronto Regionals last April, so I haven't needed a valentine till now...  I also wanted to play with Laurel's Inspired By challenge with this week's yummy inspiration photo - so the two fit perfectly together.   *There is a new Inspired By challenge posted every Thursday... so if you don't have time to play today, check back tomorrow to see what's up for the next week's challenge.  I stamped the hearts first in grey wool on the grey flannel cardstock, and then again on white using Holiday Red.  After cutting them out, I scored down the center of each heart, and sewed it down to the base with some black thread, giving them a bit of fun dimension.
Stamp set is Affection; Cardstock is White Daisy, Grey Flannel, Grey Wool & Holiday Red; Inks are Holiday Red & Grey Wool - all CTMH; Baker's Twine from The Twinery.
Here was our inspiration photo:

This is just beautiful! The red really pops and I like how it looks paired up against the grey wool. Thanks for playing with us this week at H2H!
