In Love with MOSD

How about some "love" to keep you warm through the winter? I know it's still January, but you have to start early if you want to get those Valentine's projects completed. Today I have a little Valentine decoration to share.

I started with a Perfectly Shaped Circle Scallop from MOSD as the base. The scalloped edge gives another layer of "ruffle" to my project, and the chipboard provides a sturdy base for all the layers.



Now that I have all the layers in place, I can make this a hanging by adding a ribbon hanger at the top, make a few more and create a banner, or attach it to a card base and my decoration becomes a romantic card - reminiscent of those elaborate and gorgeous Valentines our grandparents used to give and receive.

Visit my blog for more photos and instructions on how I put this piece together.

Thanks for taking a look!
