CWC Weekly Challenge # 72-Grown-Up Valentines-Must use black and a brad!

Hello and welcome back for another CWC Weekly Challenge.  This weeks theme is a grown-up Valentine and you must use the color black and a brad.

So I have to admin I forgot about the brad but found the perfect place for it at the end of making my card.  I will giving this card to my hubby along with some cupcakes and beer (his favorite :)).

Here is my card:

The lighting is off for some reason but the paper is pink, dark/bright pink

I cut the black heart from Lyrical Letters, then I used some $1 stamps from AC Moore for the big white heart made of little hearts (I used a white ink pad and then sprinkled a little bit of embossing powder on it) and for the sentiments (did the same thing with them).  They are hard to see in the picture but you can see them in person.  I added a small piece of solid string to make a tiny little bow above the heart.

The cute cupcake bear is from Paper Crafting World and can be found for purchase here, I added the brad to the bow, I printed two prints and cut out the cherry, put some glossy accents on it then attached it with a pop dot, I also lightly added some purple stickles to the wrapper part of the cupcake and some pink stickles to the icing.

Thanks for stopping by this week, make sure you stop by Cooking with Cricut and see what all of the wonderful designers have created this week.
