Anniversary card

My friend C has a really bad habit of asking me to make cards at the very last minute... This time she needed an anniversary card for her husband - in 2 days time!

I find it hard to come up with cards for men at the best of times, and with a shortened timescale decided to keep it clean and simple.

I used a plain white card base, which I layered with red card.  Then I used one of my new Die D-lites from Spellbinders to cut out the filligree heart in the centre of a white square.  This showed through the red from underneath.  The top heart was cut using both elements from the die set in the same red as the base layer.

I stamped the banner and cut it out from the white card, but had no sentiments that would easily fit.  So I turned to my trusty peel offs.  They were in silver though, and I wanted them to be red... Thank goodness for Promarkers!  I used Poppy to colour the sentiments, and the three small hearts in the top right hand corner.

And because it still looked a bit unfinished, I used the thin nib on the promarker to make some faux stitching around the edge.

I am entering this card into the following challenge:
