Scrapology - January Card Challenge

This month on Scrapology, Ali from Craft Ribbons has sponsored our monthly card challenge. The team (and readers joining in with the challenge) are challenged to "Say it with Ribbons" by creating a 'Love' themed card incorporating ribbons - very apt with Valentine's Day just a month away.

I created a cute little square card with a 'Me to You' image.

To create the ribbon heart in the centre of the card I fixed pieces of ribbon to a piece of cardstock which I had cut roughly to the size of the finished heart. The size of the heart was the same as a White heart shaped paper doilie from The Hobby House which I trimmed to create a frame for my ribbon heart. The doilie edged heart was mounted on a square piece of red and white spotty paper which I edged with white lace. I finished the card by embelishing it with red Card Candi from Craftwork Cards, a ribbon bow and a pre-made 'Me to You' topper and tag from DoCrafts.

The prize for the winner of this month's challenge is a set of 16 'Valentine' ribbons so pop over to Scrapology and have a go.
