Ribbons of Love...

to view an image up-close, please click on the photo
Love is in the air! Well, there is love and there is also the smell of burnt popcorn from our neighbor's apartment, but I choose to focus on the LOVE. I have been meaning to try my hand at this week's Scrappy Saturday For the Love of Ribbon challenge and finally found some time to make a card. I combined it with the Moxie Fab Grey is the New Black Challenge to make what I hoped would be an elegant Valentine's card.
I created the ribbon heart by adhering strips of grosgrain and then trimming carefully around the shape. Once glued down, the edges don't fray. I hope you pop on by again tomorrow for another Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop where we'll be hoppin' with some LOVE inspiration! And, if you think I might make a good Cosmo Girl, nominate me here on Facebook - thanks for your votes!
