Monochromatic

Since I do not own any PB Valentine stamp, I thought I should use some stamps which I have and improvise them into what I think is appropriate.  Fortunately, I received this free stamp from last month's challenge. 

I decided to keep the girl who is reading a book and colored it in different tones of red.  Very much motivated by Elizabeth from PB who is always combining her stamps to create beautiful images, I thought I should challenge myself too!!  The book which she is holding reads as "Guide To" and I just added the heart embellishement on it to complete the theme!  I tilted the girl to show off her .... (I'm innocent)!
 
The heart shape is cut from a piece of paper and I used the negative part to create the shape.  The "XOXO" stamp is from HA Everyday Saying which is also stamped in red.  Ta! Na!  Here is the result!

I am entering this card into the following challenges : Sir Stampalot Challenge, Penny Black and More, Moxie World
