Embellish Challenge w/Hearts

Hi everyone! Can you believe tomorrow is already Friday? I tell you, sometimes I blink and it feels like I've lost a week. LOL

I love the challenges over at Embellish, but it always seems like I run out of time before I get a chance to play. SO... I wanted to make sure I dug down deep and found some time to create something. Woot!

As soon as I saw the colors for this challenge (pink, red & black), I knew I wanted to create something with black and white photos... Why is it whenever I'm pressed for time, I always want to make something that requires *more* time than a card? LOL

Have a great day!
