Can You Handle the Pressure - RED and/or PINK

 Dear Ones~
There's a new challenge over at Can You Handle the Pressure.   For this challenge blog you MUST use an EMBOSSING FOLDER on your project.  Heat embossing (with embossing powder) is permitted but only IN ADDITION to your embossing folder design.  Each new challenge will have a 'TWIST' which is optional ... your choice to use or not.

The OPTIONAL TWIST for today's challenge is:

RED and/or PINK
Here is my sample:
As you can see I chose red, and lots of I kinda wanted to go clean and simple with this card because it's a Valentine for our son. I LOVE this new embossing folder I recently purchased. It's called Mark Making Hearts by Sizzix. Isn't it fun? And I love that cute little bird. It has many pieces, but does seem to come together quickly.

The Ingredients:
GKD Red Hot and White Card Stock
Sizzix Mark Making Hearts Embossing Folder
Spellbinders Little Chickadee Die Set
Lawn Fawn Hugs and Kisses Line Border Die
Trinity Stamps Cinnamon Red Hearts Baubles
