Happy Monday - BBTB Challenge Stamp from Sweethearts Cartridge

Happy Monday everyone! I can't believe that this the last week in January already - I swear we just started this year and now we are almost a month into it! I remember thinking how slowly time moved when I was a child and now that I am a adult - I wish it would slow down!

So this week over at BBTB2 we were challenged by Marina to use the cute little stamp from the sweethearts cartridge that can be found on page 49. I have to admit - this cartridge is becoming one of my favorites - so if you have been holding out because you thought it was "just for weddings" think again it's a go to cartridge in my opinion.

I decided to keep it simple and allow the cut to become the base of my card. I had some of this sweet valentine paper from the MLYB line from last year that I decided to pull out and use up (I am trying to be better about using my supplies this year - it's either that or start building a house with all of my paper ;)).

The stamp and shadow layer were cut at 5 inches - this makes the perfect portrait size card - tied it off with some ribbon from Martha Stewart, threw on some bling by Heidi Swapp, and added a few hand stitches using my uniball signo pen.

Here's a view from the front:

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope that you will head over to the BBTB2 site and play along with us - after all you know you wanna ;)

Have a super week everyone!
