Just a Valentine Bow (And Heart)


This wasn't what I was going to post today - but for the CAS challenge at SCS the challenge was for a Valentine card and I thought this would qualify as Clean and Simple. I had purchased the ribbon last year at a flower shop that was going out of business. I must have at least 100 yards of this stuff.......and it's really kinda unique. The sides of the ribbon are like frayed or something. Basically, it has these little strands all over it (sorta looks like "hairy ribbon")!!

The heart stamp is from Soul Mates by CTMH. This was stamped in Versa and then Real Red and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The bow was made with the Bow-Easy (of course). The white panel was made using the Heart Blocks embossing folder. I attached red floss to the top of the heart.

Thanks for stopping by...............
