CAS-ual Fridays and Dynamic Duos

This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to use a heart on our project.  I have so many heart stamps, I didn't know where to start.  This idea came to me in spin class, and I decided to go with it.  It doesn't show up in the picture, but the hog die cuts are stamped with PTI Crackle stamp, which gives them a bit more interest.  The hearts are from the center of the butterfly die from PTI Love Lives Here.

It's been a while since I have had a chance to play with the Dynamic Duos challenge.  I really loved Michelle's card that was last week's winner, and it inspired me to make my card this week.  I used this retro telephone with VersaMagic Aquatic Splash ink embossed with clear embossing powder, and kraft ink.

And, because I really, really loved Michelle's card, and I know so many people who bike, I made a pretty direct copy to have on hand for the next spinning friend who has a birthday.
