ICS #49 - Speedy scrap Valentine

Hello all!  This week's sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches practically made itself!

I was at my local scrappy store, taking my monthly kit class. After I finished the projects for the class, I looked at my scraps and realized I had just enough to whip something together for a card. The only card design I could think of to do though was the ICS sketch, which I had been looking at before I left home for the LSS.  Well I think I put this card together at record speed!! (less than 15 mins!) The sketch seemed perfect for my remaining scraps, which were mostly the cardstock journal cards and embellishments that goes with the Pink Paislee Cupid line (an AWESOME line of papers btw).

Now, when I was cutting the brown mat, I didn't cut it the right size initially, so there I am, slicing a tiny bit off each side till I get it the size I want. As I am putting the card together I'm looking at these really thin strips of brown cardstock. I pick them up and they feel a little like tiny twigs. So I tie them into the ribbon as a dimensional embellishment! Talk about using up scraps people! LOL

Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking!
