For The Love of Everyone Blog Hop - Day 1

YAY! Today is the day - the beginning of our Valentine's Blog Hop called For the Love of Everyone!  I'm so excited to be participating in this fun hop.  The hop will be a two day hop.  What does that mean for you, each blogger will be posting at least two projects - one today and one tomorrow.  Leave a comment for both days and have double the chance of winning prizes on each blog and get an extra chance to win a tote from our AMAZING sponsor Celeste at Thirty-oneIn order to be eligible for the tote you must go to each blog at least once and leave a comment.  You will WANT to as the inspiration will be phenomenal!  So sit back, relax and have fun!  Each blog will have a Next Blog button too - so just click on that.  If you encounter a problem just take a look at the list instead!
 Our theme is "Red Hot" so I decided to make a sexy little devil card!  I used this adorable image from The Greeting Farm that's supposed to be a Halloween digital called Hallo Shedevil.  I colored her up with my Copics - concentrating on reds and black with flashes of white.
Originally, I wanted to have flames around her, but I just couldn't get them to look right so I decided to switch to this swirly/sparkly black and white paper.  I added some crinkle ribbon I bought from my FAVORITE ribbon store called Prairie Bird Boutique.
Patsy is WONDERFUL and her customer service is AMAZING!  And just look at this gorgeous ribbon!
I did cut a few hearts on my Cricut from George and Basic Shapes.  Each element was inked with my Tim Holtz Black Soot ink.  I used a Martha Stewart corner punch on two ends of the black swirl paper.
I ended with a few clear gems on her dress and on each heart.  I also decided to add two red pearls to my sentiment which was computer generated and cut using my oval die cut.  I lined the background with my scalloped nestable in a red.  I added pop dots to the little devil and popped her off the card.
Now, on to the good stuff.  I will be giving away to two lucky winners their choice of one bundle of ribbon (3 colors) of Prairie Bird Boutique crinkle ribbon.
* Example Only - You choose colors*
All you have to do is leave a comment today and tomorrow!  Now, on to the next gorgeous creation in our line-up.  Yolie has created something inspiring and downright stunning!  Now if you get lost because a link did now work properly - just look at the list!
