Ribbon Carousel Challenge: Love, Birthday, and Chicken Soup

  This is my first official post as a design team member of the Ribbon Carousel Crew.  The challenge themes are monthly and the design team is divided into smaller groups to provide weekly inspiration for the monthly theme.
  Earlier in the month I created a get well card ("chicken soup") when I announced that I was invited to be a part of this team.  My card for today covers love and birthday...a double play :)

  I have a sweet friend whose birthday is very close to Valentine's Day, so I hope she will like her card.

  Will you play along?  For a chance to win spools of baker's twine, seam binding, or May Arts ribbon (your choice), create a new card following the challenge theme and use twine, ribbon, washi tape...anything that comes on a spool...somewhere on your creation and link up the direct link to your post at Ribbon Carousel Crew Challenge 89.

I am also entering my card in the Shop Pumpkin Spice "Something Shiny" challenge.

twine:  The Twinery "Pink Sorbet" baker's twine
decorative paper:  Doodlebug "Sweetheart" bon bons
heart pearls:  Doodlebug "bubblegum" assortment
sentiment stamp: The Cat's Pajamas
border punch and cloud punches:  EKSuccess and Fiskars, respectively
adhesive:  Xyron (for clouds and card stock layers; also holds twine securely!)
ink:  Hero Arts black (Artful Delight kit December 2013...sold out)
pen:  Creative Memories black (rain dots)

I hope to see you at the Ribbon Carousel blog...
Happy Tuesday!

Fab card, June - and so clever - the kraft clouds raining pink hearts are brilliant and the sentiment couldn't be more perfect.
