Red and Pink Together?

The only time of year that I would ever put red and pink together is Valentine's Day. What is it about that combo that is so hideous in fashion or even cards that makes it ok to use it until the middle of February? Well, I use it with gusto this time of year to take advantage of that small window of opportunity. In case you haven't figured it out, today's projects wear their red and pink together with pride LOL! Take a look...

And a gift tag featuring some of the adorable, new Love Impressions Valentine's rub-ons:

Aren't they cute? For the card, I used 2 prints from the Love Patterns DSP along with Real Red and Pretty in Pink CS. These papers along with the stamp set I used, Filled with Love, can be purchased in the Filled with Love Bundle Promotion which lasts until January 24th. Don't forget about the FREE package of Bitty Buttons you get with the bundle!

Along with the Love Impressions Valentine's rub-ons, the tag includes an image from Perfect Punches stamp set. This set is one of the most versatile I have ever purchased. Every image coordinates with a punch! The button at the top was a leftover from a retired set but SU still makes buttons in that color so no worries if you need Pretty in Pink buttons!
