Polka Dot Love

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I spent mine mainly scrapbooking and although I REALLY tried to clean up after each page, my living room looks abominable. So, I'm going to keep this post short so I can clean up my mess - otherwise we'll be having lunch and dinner 'alfresco' again.

The above card I've created quickly with a background stamp, some cutting out and a little satin ribbon from the Spring Mini. I've also tried to incorporate a faux bow with the love heart actually on the front of the bow. My inspiration (and your going to laugh at me for this) was Sir Percival Blakeney's Cravat in "The Scarlet Pimpernel" which I watched over the weekend! I've securely adhered the heart and bow in place by a brad from my pretties kit which I don't use often enough. I wished the photo captured how the rhinestone brad catches the light and transforms the card, but I'm afraid you'll have to take my word for it and 'imagine' the sparkle.

Supplies:
* Polka Dot Background & Polka Dot Punches Stamp Sets.
* Purely Pomegranate Stamp Pad.
* Whisper White & Purely Pomegranate Cardstock.
* Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon, Pretties Kit, Brayer, Crop-a-dile & Piercing Tool.
