Louisa & Leoncio Sweethearts

Ready for another challenge at The Stamping Bazaar? This week is Valentines themed but I made my card to also be used for an nontraditional wedding card too with Louisa and Leoncio! So many of my cards this week have been red and pink and I couldn't get over the call of this green and gray paper. Plus it works well with the music paper and two sweethearts together. So come on over and join the challenge and lets see what you come up with.

Did you know? Sweethearts are small heart-shaped candies sold around Valentine's Day. Each conversation heart is printed with a message such as "Be Mine", "Kiss Me", "Call Me", and "Miss You". Necco manufactures nearly 8 billion Sweethearts per year. Necco introduced 10 new Sweethearts Conversation Hearts sayings each year which are theme inspired, for example "#1 Fan", "Fit for Love", and "Dream Team" (2005); "Sweet Home", "Home Soon" and "Call Home" (2006); and "Cool Cat," "Puppy Love," "Love Bird," and "My Pet" (2008). However, in 2010 and for the first time in 145 years, Sweethearts discarded all its previous phrases and asked the American public to tell us how they express their love.
