Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style - Valentines

Hi everyone!   Welcome to this week's Ribbon Inspiration Stamp Simply Style. This week we are making Valentines!  Yep, time to move on from Christmas and venture into Valentines!

I went kinda cutsie with my card.  I used the JustRite cling set, Adorable Dragon.  He is just so fun and cute!  I colored him to match the Bo Bunny paper, Smoochable pad.  Love the fun bright colors in this pad!  This card is pretty simple in design, but I did indulge and add 3 pieces of 1/8" velvet ribbon across the bottom.  How could I not, it comes in all 3 colors on the card?  lol!
 OK, try not to look too closely at my copic coloring (really not my strong point), but I did take my blender pen and add the little dots on him.  I copied the idea from the picture on the stamp set.  That's what I like about JR, they show their images colored in on the packaging!

Here is another card I made using the same sentiment, pattern paper and velvet ribbons.  This card uses the Fall To Layout sketch #172.  Love these sketches for quick and easy cards!

Each week we will have fabulous Blog Candy (this week's is pictured below) inspired by out theme.  The winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, one comment per blog, please.  The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. EST on Tuesday, January 10th and posted on Sharon's blog on Wednesday. 
Here is the list of today's participants:
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  I'll leave you with some close up pictures.
