Stampin'B Challenge

I was the hostess for the Stampin'B's DT Blog challenge this week, and I asked everyone to use ribbon for something other than a bow or knot. That said, I'm not even sure I like my card -- but it's done; and it is what it is. It looked much better in my mind!

I sewed some running stitches through a piece of ribbon and then drew it up into ruffles, which I then attached to the back of my stamped/embossed heart. I stamped the same heart image three times in pink onto a piece of white cardstock and then punched a border on either side with a MS lacey border punch. I found a piece of DP in my stash that had the same shades of pink as the Strawberry Freeze layer and the pink ink of the three background hearts. I positioned the red, ruffled heart over the middle one with pop dots, then added the butterfly and sentiment.
