All we need is love

Love is patient,
Love is kind,
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It is not rude,
It is not self-seeking, nor easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs. 
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
Love always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8

I have been impatient with Liz this morning and I am going to post this card I made, to her, as a way of apology, I am sorry darling I love her and I should be more patient.  I miss both you and Min, more so, during the festive period.   

When I saw the figure 8 bow from Amazing paper grace, which Becca has a you-tube video on how to make this.  It is relatively easy and since I do not have a ribbon with the stitch round the edge, so I sewed it with running stitches.   Using the same method, I sewed running stitches on a much thinner velvet ribbon and make the base for the flowers to hold up the card.  

Figure 8 bow and the base made with thinner velvet ribbon for flowers

 I added a bookmark (I left a slot at the back of this easel card)

Materials used :-

1.  LOVE stamp : ODBD
2.  Pattern paper : Little yellow bicycle - lollipop stripe with glitter, cardstock : AC - primaries
3.  Spellbinder nestabilities, Magnolia Doohickeys, Sizzix movers and shakers die - love
4.  Distress ink - spun sugar
5.  Ribbons and organza flowers : Hong Kong

Thanks for dropping by :-)
