SSS141 for Valentine's Day

Hi folks,

back with another of this year's Valentine's Day cards for one of our nieces. This time I'm using the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #141 for the layout.

I had originally made this card for last week's Monday Fun Day challenge over at TGF but I missed the deadline for linking it up. Oh well! Must start keeping track of those deadlines! But I think it qualifies for the monthly retro fresh challenge (lucky in love) so I'll submit it for that instead.

card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, CTMH Chocolate card stock base
  • patterned papers: Bo Bunny "Crazy Love"
  • stamped image: Fairy Chloe from The Greeting Farm (I have the original rubber version of this stamp but she is now available as part of a clear set called Fairy Princess). Coloured with Copic Markers (R81, R83, R85, R89, R000, R01, E0000, E000, E00, E93, E30, E31, E33, E34).
  • see that gorgeous crinkly ribbon? That was a yummy prezzie from my crafty pal Tanya and this is my first time using it.  I actually wove it through the paper with the help of a ribbon slot punch and then on the exposed paper spots I made little ribbon knot flowers and stuck them on with really big glue dots. Looks great in real life. Thanks T!
  • lace ribbon is from my stash

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
