SKETCH 64: RIBBON!


*card edited in!*

I couldn't resist cutting into my new valentine papers from Little Yellow Bicycle! This is their Cupcake Love collection, and I just love these candy hearts!! I started with a Pure Poppy card base and rounded the corners. I then punched twelve 1.25" circles from the candy heart paper to make some ruffly scallops. For my ribbon, which we are focusing on this week, I chose a black tulle so that it would really pop! Two heart stick pins, also from LYB's Cupcake Love collection, were pulled through the knot. I punched and inked a heart (using an SU punch) from the same candy heart paper for the top of my card. I popped the heart up a little using Pop It! Circles. Now, did you see that super-fabulous stamp?!? I love the Happy Day stamp from Stampendous! What a simple, cute valentine-themed sentiment that could be used on valentines for ANYONE! We only have one left in stock, and it's only $3.53, so be sure to snag it while it's available!! There are plenty of other Stampendous stamps, including some that would be perfect for valentines!!
