Sentimental Sundays Challenge #42

This week the challenge on the Sentimental Sundays blog is to use pink, red and white - perfect time of year for these colors! Our sponsors for this week's challenge are Meljen's Designs and Raindrop Echo Designs - both are outstanding digital designers and these prizes are worth competing for!!! Here's my card:

This is the card that I gave to DH for V-day and for our Anniversary. Card base and trim pieces are Regal Rose (SU) and I used some Real Red dp (SU) for the background. I colored the image with markers and also in my graphics program and punched the corner with my fave corner punch. Sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs and I added a glittery red heart (SU). The punched strip is my latest addition to my MS punch collection and when I first saw it I pictured it with ribbon threaded through, so that's what I did. The ribbon is Pretty in Pink (SU) and I added some pearls (SU) for good measure. It was a fun card to make and I am also entering it into the following challenges:
