Just Because...

I made this card before Valentine's Day, with no intention of using it as a Valentine card. The layout is from a January sketch challenge my friend Joanne runs on the gallery forum of our LSS, and you know how much I {heart} sketches. 

I picked up the two large chipboard hearts at my LSS and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. The scalloped heart is inked with Chocolate Chip to provide a good base colour. Then I covered the other heart with adhesive and set to work using up some ribbon scraps. Not sure what I was thinking, but I was convinced this card would put a dent in my scraps drawer. I think I'd need to make a hundred of these before I'd see a change in that ribbon drawer! LOL! The top heart is punched from Pink Pirouette then I added Hero Arts gemstones all around the edge. 

The papers are from Making Memories Paperie line and I stitched around the edge for some Janome was acting up though and the tension is all wonky...oh well. The rubon is from SU along with the chocolate grosgrain ribbon. 

Hey, I just now realized there isn't any stamping at all on this did I allow that to happen?  :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Karen,

Even though there is no stamping on this, it looks really good. Nice colour scheme.

Pretty and what a great way to use up your ribbon scraps. As you said - you'll need to make a "few" more of these to empty that ribbon drawer my friend! :)
