OWH Red Friday Blog Hop Linky

In response to the OWH Red Friday Blog Hop, I created a Love card using some Idea-Ology Film Strip Ribbon. I have been hoarding it for a couple of years and after seeing Sandy Allnock's cute card, I thought I would try it out. 
Here's a peek at Sandy's card
It's made out of a stiff plastic like the real film strip and curled in this tiny container so getting it to lie flat was not an option. I had it laid out overnight with weighted items and it wasn't budgin' so I adhered it to the back with tape, colored my staples brown and added 1 to each side for stability. I stamped some little Peachy Keen faces directly on to the Bo Bunny paper using a Fiskar's stamp press and finished it off with a few Hero Arts gems.
I embossed the sentiment and matching hearts but apparently, this was not World Embossing Day. I tried 3 times on the sentiment, using the dust buddy and still couldn't get a clean sentiment. The hearts turned out pretty well though lol
Hope you will take time to visit the OWH blog hop participants. They have some really cute ideas!!
