A card for my Upline!
I have the sweetest Stampin Up! upline ever! I was flipping through a magazine one day and saw an advertisement for Stampin Up! and was intrigued! I went to their website and used their demo locater to find a demonstrator in my area. I met her online and then wound up going to one of her workshops and that is how I got hooked on stamping! When I say hooked...I mean hooked! I was bitten hard by the stamping bug! My collection began that very night and now I see stamps in my sleep! Ribbon has taken on new meaning and sparkley things...FORGET ABOUT IT!!! I am hooked, hooked, hooked!! LOL
I wanted to send her a little I am thinking of you! I used the pattern from a recent challenge on split coast. You can find it here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=315128
I thought it was perfect to let her know I was thinking about her! I made the heart and fastened it together with two brads. I tied a ribbon on the top and used pop dots to raise the sentiment up off of the heart. I made the scalloped edges by punching out circles and adding them one at a time. I used a white gel pen to add the dots on the scallops and paper pierced the edges of the heart. Then I added a few flowers with a sparkly jewel center! : )
