The Beauty of Love

Hello Everyone!!!  With Valentines quickly approaching I am sure there is one last card that needs to be made. Create a project based on Love. It does not have to be Valentine related. It can be just because you love someone.

Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creations HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB19. You have until February 29th to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!
I've used a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with black and some Yours Truly DP that I've sewn zig zig around the edges.  I've then die cut some black using Spellbinders Eyelet Squares Nestabilities.  Next I double sided punched another piece of red and topped with another piece of Yours Truly DP.  Over this I've added a wide black satin ribbon and topped with red satin ribbon.  I've used this basket image from Flourishes' new Love Sweet Love set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers (E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, E51, R81, R83, R85, R32, R35, R37, RV00, RV02).  I've cut it out with Large Square Nestabilities and stamped the sentiment from the same set in the corner.  I've framed it with red cut with Labels 3 Nestabilities and adhered it over the black square.  To finish I've added a red bow and a few clear rhinestones to the corners.
