I got inspired by sorting through all my hearts and other Valentine's supplies to add on 1 more color to the black and white and then decided to keep the buffalo plaid centered and viola! Red colored pencil to fill in white areas of the love script cardstock as well as the buffalo plaid paper. Different stickers plus a red cardstock background layer--
