Color Inspiration ~ All About Pink
Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge #15 ~ Pink & Bling I used glitter cardstock and lots of Spica on my image to make it sparkle, plus the silver charms shine things up.
Whiff of Joy Challenge #65 , Papertake Weekly Challenge, Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #68 ~ Hearts
365 Cards Day 341 ~ Substitution Please We were to use a heart instead of a flower on card. See the 2 heart flowers dangling from their vine at the top of the card?
CHARMS: I picked up a set of 5 heart charms in the clearance jewelry section at Wal-Mart.

I usually work hard to NOT have frayed ribbon, but I really like this look.
TIP: I keep a lighter in my tool caddy and run the flame VERY CAREFULLY over the ends of ribbons that aren’t hidden on the card. This works best on grosgrain and ‘melts’ the ends so they won’t fray.
