Simply Love One Another...

Paper Crafts Magazine is hosting a fun challenge this week, which is to use one of their free downloadable simple sentiments on a card. I chose one based on the Pals Paper Arts Challenge inspiration photo -- that red heel really spoke to me! Today is also the re-launch day for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. The lovely ladies who run it have made some  significant changes to their already delightful challenge to make it even more fun. It's a "day to evening" twist, and players are welcome to play twice, with a "daytime" look and/or a "nighttime look" for challenge projects. I'm a little under the weather today, so I chose to just play with one look, and I chose an elegant evening out.
For this card, I first printed the simple sentiment and image onto white card stock and set it aside. I then trimmed some black card stock and embossed with an embossing folder. Next, I ran the panel through my Big Shot with a die cut for a window, which I then placed over the sentiment image. I threaded some very red twill ribbon through the card stock and then added a nice, simple bow. I love the sentiment and the image is perfect for an anniversary or maybe, just to simply say, "I love you." (Edit: In case you are looking for this Simple Sentiment, click HERE.)
