An Award and A Craft Barn Card

Thanks go to Georgia over at Kitty Krafts who kindly gave me a lovely award recently (see sidebar) which I must pass on to five other crafters. Therefore, I am passing it on to:-

Eunice-Cruising and Crafting
Fliss-Stampers Chef
Sarita-Little Princess Cards
Sandra- Sandra Dry Designs
Michelle-Midnight Crafter

These are all ladies whose work I admire and they have all inspired me at some time.

The Craft Barn have started a monthly competition, this month the theme is LOVE and here is the sketch you must follow.

Below, is my interpretation of the sketch.

I used Inkadinkado and Hero Arts stamps on this card and coloured with chalks. The red panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug Hearts folder and I dotted around some gold stickles on the stamping. After punching out several borders, I eventually settled on this red spotty ribbon instead! To finish off I made a gold cord bow and a tag with a rub-on sentiment. ( It had to be 'luv' rather than 'love' as I had run out of the letter 'e'.)

Thanks for taking a look and for all your lovely comments.
