Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to all my readers!

I found this pretty vintage collage paper back in December at a local Scrap-booking store. Once I saw it, I grabbed the last sheet of it! Isn't it just to die for? I like all the vintage images, and the collage aspect of it, just puts the cherry on top! You can orient your paper vertical or horizontal, which ever way you want to accent the image of your choice!
I made my card base out of Cherry Cobbler (Stampin' Up!) cardstock. The tag was cute from Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up!) cardstock and ran through my big shot, using the Lots of Tags (Stampin' Up!) die. 'Happy Valentine's Day' is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes (Stampin' Up!) stamp set. The ribbon is actually Seam Binding - Baja Breeze (Stampin' Up!).
To achieve the crinkled look of the ribbon, I just spritz it with some water and wadded it up in my hands. Tied the bow, and then pulled one of the threads to help it bind. Viola!
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope your day is filled with love and laughter, and that you get to share this day with family and friends!
