Two Hearts, One Love.

I just had to join in the fab Blog Hop and challenge that's going on over at House Mouse and Friends.
They have some amazing prizes on offer and I love seeing the antics of all these little cuties.


This stamp is from the 'Love - Sunflower' set, coloured with Copics and some Glamour Dust.
I thought that, by using the 'congratulations' stamp, the card is a bit more versatile and it can go in my stash ready for an engagement, an anniversary or a wedding. What do you think?

I have seen people do this 'ruffled ribbon' style on their cards and thought I would try it out. I put a strip of DS tape where I wanted the ribbon and pleated the ribbon up as I went along. Then I was left with the pleats all sticking up!!! So, I added a piece of narrow ribbon on top to keep them flat.
Perhaps I should have researched how to do it first!!   :-) Youtube here I come!


Challenges.
House Mouse and Friends - Love theme, with more than one Heart
Cupcake Craft - Pink and Red as the main focus. (hope there's not too much green on there!)
Allsorts - Free and Easy
Crafty Calendar - Love and Marriage with Lace/Pearls as Optional Extras
Bling It On - Love is All Around

Supplies.
House Mouse Stamp - Love Sunflower.  Copics.   Glamour Dust
XCut nested Heart Dies.    Congratulations stamp from Wild Rose Studios.
DP - K & Co Classic K
Pearls and ribbon from my stash.
