Clean and Simple Craft Room

I saw a card the other day, which I just loved. However, I now can't remember where I saw it or whose blog it was on... but I'm sure I'll be able to find it sometime soon.
I have just found it.... it's from Laurie's blog here.
It gave me the inspiration for this one. This almost looks as though it has been masked, but is in fact simply a flourish from Stampin' Up's Joie set, which has been stamped onto red paper and embossed with WOW Sparkling Snow EP. A section was then punched using the Stampin' Up heart punch.
The manuscript stamp is from Hero Arts, stamped in Stazon, with the heart simply stuck over the top. The paper and card are a pretty good colour match however.
Easy Peasy!
