I started off by picking out some different scraps of pink and red paper. Those would act as the background on top of which I would put the other phrases and stuff. Over the years I've collected pictures, phrases, and interesting patterns to use for mod podging, so I had plenty to choose from. I arranged them on a scrap of cardboard and glued them down.
Next I had to find something to hang it up with, and since I wanted it to be Valentine's themed, I grabbed a pink bandanna. I rolled it up and put a bit of hot glue throughout so that it would stay rolled.

While the bandanna was drying, I painted the back of the cardboard black. This is my favorite black paint because it's just slightly metallic. So much better than a plain black matte. After two coats of black paint had time to dry, I hot glued the bandanna to the back.
And that was it! My sister really liked it, especially where it said, "Bring out your sexy." I know she appreciated that part. ;]
