Still Working on Valentines.


Here is a little card I created for a challenge my friend Olga told me about. It is over at Create with Bubbe, and it is to use ribbon on your project. I just love to add a bit of ribbon here and there to add to texture and pattern on my cards. It does not always need to a big fancy bow. Just a little knot will do the trick.

My card started with Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K. Designs, in Ocean Mist, Soft Sand, and Chocolate Kiss. I created ticket corners using a small circle punch. My stamp set is one I received from a friend, and is called See With The Heart, 2004 SU!. I stamped my image in Rich Cocoa ink from Memento, also using it for sponging, and added touches of Copic Marker. I punched 2 sizes of hearts with my Marvy punches, running the larger one through the Cuttlebug with an EF. For accents, I added gems and some polka dot ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate each and every one of you!

Love the blues and browns -- very calming! Hope it's warmed up a bit in your neck of the woods -- wind chill at 0 is waaaayyyy too cold!
