IHP - I Love You

This morning, it's sunny out my window after all the fickle weather we've had so I was inspired to create this sunny card.

I used some lovely pink floral pattern paper from the Sweetness paper pack from Pink Paislee to base my card on. This paper is so softly feminine that I wanted to use soft coloured ink and card stock. I layered pink silk ribbon over a white eyelet punched border, ivory crochet trim by May Arts, topped by taupe satin ribbon and a bow (LOVE my bow easy!!!). I love all the texture!

This sentiment is from Simply You by Technique Tuesday. First, I masked off 'I love you' and inked 'This is why' using pumice stone distress ink and then I reversed the mask and inked 'I love you' using frayed burlap. I cut the sentiment using large petite oval nestabilities and mounted it using small petite oval and large petite scallop oval nestabilities mounted using Zva dimensionals. I used a corrugated frame by jillibean to base the sentiment on and embellished it with a couple of ribbon flowers from Lavish Trimmings by Tim Holtz.

It's going to be a lovely day and this was a terrific way to start it. Have a banner day, peeps!
