Tied By Love

Hi Everyone!! Man, this month just seems to have totally gotten away from me.  I have only gotten a couple of cards made and I need to start working on Birthday Card again. YIKES! Someone come and light a fire under me Please!   I made a Valentines card today...gotta get a few of these done before the big day arrives.  CAS-ual Fridays have a Black and White challenge going so I thought I would try my hand at a totally black and white card.  Those two colors are just so elegant no matter what kind of card you are making.  Have a look.....


 This elegant and cute card took very little supplies.  I used my cuttlebug folder -swiss dots, Charcoal baker's twine from the twinery, a small and med heart punch (have no idea what brand) and the computer digi font is Ottum Hmk reg and bold.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me awhile :)  Hope to see you all back here soon and I will announce the winners of my Valentine Giveaway on Feb 1st, so stay tuned for that! HUGS ALL!!

I love the b/w simplicity! Notching the sides of the card is ingenious. Did you just use a hole punch? Thank you for following and I'm following back!
