My Heart Skips A Beat...

Hello Stampers! What a break it's been. I was having a hard time trying to get my mojo back. It's time to think about Valentine's Day. Today I'm sharing with you a Valentine's card using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' Bottom of My Heart set. 

I used Memory Box's Hug's 'n Kisses die to create my background with the kraft paper. I then freehand the banner and stamped the sentiment. The heart was stamped then fussy cut and adhered to the black lace ribbon. I distressed the edges with wet chalk to give it a softer look.

Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps  (Hugs 'n Kisses)
Papers: Bo-Bunny, Bazzill, Kraft cardstock, 
Inks: Color Box (red chalk ink), Black
Accessories: Want 2 Scrap (red rhinestones, BBP (clear rhinestones)
Tools: Memory Box (Hugs 'n Kisses die)
