Coordinating ribbon and glitter to complete.

Spoonful of Sugar Challenge #36 This one is for a challenge for the KDT team, we were asked to create a valentine with a vintage theme.

I decided to make the little puppy look like he was soaring away. The shakers are the balloons!! I also created his little basket with ribbons and wove them together. The card has some pretty stitching both inside and out. A little angel charm hand from the front of the balloon strings.

I also made a coordinating box to ensure that the card will stay safe for many years to come.

As always it will be available on from 7:30p.m. (CST) tonight.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening.
