ODBDSLC270 Monthly Challenge-February

Hello everyone!
Each month Our Daily Bread designs offers a challenge to crafters. This month's challenge is to create a card using the sketch they provide. 

Here is the sketch:

This card was so fun to make, I think because I loved the paper I was working with.  ODBd papers are thicker than many other patterned papers and this makes die cutting so much easier. Thin papers tear so easily when coming out of the dies. 

I used a little dimensional adhesive under the center sentiment ovals to help offset the dimension of the bow when it goes through the post office. I also used a Zig Wink of Stella Clear pen to add a little shimmer to the red brads. 

I did a double row of the ribbon when one was just not enough and I added the crocheted border die on the edges for the fun of it (because everything is better with a crochet trim, right?)

I made two of these using the Heart and Soul papers because with Valentine's Day right around the corner, I know I will use them. 

Supplies used:

Our Daily Bread designs "Crocheted Border Die" (sorry, I can not find a link, it might be retired.)
