January Challenge - Be My Valentine

Happy New Year Everyone!  Hope you've all recovered from any New Year celebrations and are ready for a brand new challenge at the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
This month it was my lovely team mate, Peet who chose the challenge - Be My Valentine!  Why not join in with us? Just make something sweet for Valentine's day and pop on over to the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Blog to enter your creation and be in with a chance to win something pretty.

Here are my three creations...
Be My Valentine
I cut my base card from Kraft, then a smaller mat in red linen and an overlay flourish in gold mirror card.  I designed and cut these on my Cameo. For my gold roses I roughly drew three spirals on the reverse of some gold mirror card, then cut those out and rolled them.  The three red roses and pearl stems are from my stash.
The heart pin, and 15mm cream satin for my bow, are from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. My sentiment is from Tiny Sweetheart Sentiments by Pink Petticoat, and the label was cut from the Memory Box - Bistro Label die.
Valentine Tag
For my second project I used black brocade cardstock and a digital label with sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.  I coloured the tiny hearts on the sentiment label with a pro marker to match the ribbon. My ribbon bow is made with the beautiful 16mm fuschia ruffle edge ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. Bling hearts are from Smitten by K&Company.
 Valentine Card
This sweet little Valentine card was made using Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs and Picot Circle dies.  My bow was  made with 25mm red large check gingham, to which I added a heart button coloured with pro markers.  The ribbon, heart pin and Happy Valentine's Day stamp by Catslife Press are all available from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

If you pop on over to the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Blog, you'll see some fabulous creations and inspiration from my team mates.

Thank you for stopping by xx
Have a Great Day and a Wonderful 2012!!
