Finally ...

Finally, I managed to make a card for my son to give to his girlfriend that he liked - he really is getting fussy in his old age!

He kept on that he wanted a red bow - well I don't often do bows, I'm not very good at them, but I had a go and this is the resulting card.  The hearts are from the Clearly Besotted 'Love Hearts' stamp and die set and the sentiment is from the Mama Elephant 'Confetti' stamp set.  I dry embossed some lines and mounted everything onto red card stock.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - A for Always and Forever
Totally Papercrafts Challenge 206 - Valentine/Love
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge 50 - Must Have Hearts
Brown Sugar Challenge 81 - Use a Die Cut or Punch
Creative Moments Challenge 36 - Anything Goes/Love
Deep Ocean Challenge 71 - Love Is All Around
Sister Act Card Challenge 44 - Anything Goes
Oldie But A Goodie Challenge - Valentine (Stamps, Die and Ribbon all over 6 months old)
Shelly's Images February Challenge - Use TWO hearts and the colours Red and/or Pink

Thank you so much for joining me today, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that takes the time to visit my blog and leave a comment.

Your deep red bow is fabulous! I know the real reason you don't make many of them is you don't want the rest of us to feel bad that we can't make them that well.

Your card is so simple yet elegant. I can see why your son picked this one as the winner.
