A Ruffled Valentine: Won't You Be Mine?

Although I have many more snowmen that I want to create on paper, today's card features my favorite holiday of the year - Valentine's Day!
I love making little gifts of love for my family members and close friends. This card uses some gorgeous ribbon and fun twine from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, along with some other fun things! 

My paper is from the Secret Admirer Collection by Kaisercraft. I love the variety of papers in this pack - including some glitzy designs with shimmer and shine (like the green dotted above). It also has punch outs in the back that you can use for embellishment and sentiments. My sentiment today is stamped on one of the designer papers using VersaFine Onyx, and then cut out with Spellbinders' Classic Heart die. I chose some of the other paper designs in the pack for my banners, cut with Spellbinders' Nested Lacey Pennants. A trio of pink rhinestones adds some bling.
Striped ribbon is one of my favorites, and this 1 1/2" Pink Striped just makes me feel good! I ruched it with the help of 1/2" Scor-Tape and Glue Dots, and then added three strands of Apple Green/White Baker's Twine and a button for fun (and added stability!). I like the ruffled look and hope you do too!
