Goodbye to Love Letter DSP!

I'm SO going to miss the retiring Love Letter DSP! So I used it for this card with the Artistic Etchings stamp set and the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch#155 here.
The base is Riding Hood Red card stock. I ran a piece of the DSP thru the Big Shot with the Top Note die. I punched out the black scallop with the XL 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle punch. I used the XL 2 1/2 inch Circle punch on the black polka-dotted DSP. I stamped the crown in Riding Hood Red on Very Vanilla and the key in Basic Black on Very Vanilla, cut both out and popped them up with Stampin' dimensionals. Amour was stamped in Riding Hood Red too. I used two Basic Black brads on the bottom right hand side of the card. Finally, some 1 1/4 inch retired Riding Hood Red striped grosgrain finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Artistic Etchings
Papers: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Love Letter DSP
Inks: Basic Black and Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Top Note Big Shot die, XL 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle punch, XL 2 1/2 inch Circle punch, Basic Black Brads, 1 1/4 inch Riding Hood Red striped grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' dimensionals

Lovely card Jennie! I love your use of the DSP with the Top Note and your sentiment placement is so creative! Love the sentiment stamped in the same color as the cardstock too! Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie & Mary!
