is fully aware...and it's RED!

February is American Heart Month (although Heart Disease Awareness extends to everyone, we're just really in need of some awareness), so on Feb. 4 a bunch of people on FaceBook posted as their status something about their heart, ending with the phrase And it's RED! I put "Is cautious yet optimistic," but others came up with really beautiful descriptions. Inspired by this, Mojo Monday's square sketch, and TLC Creations' special freebie that day, I whipped up this 4x4 card with a PaperFacesDesigns digi that I had handy. I'm also entering this card into Craft Your Passion's Bling on Your Love challenge, although it's a little low on the bling.

This seemed like the perfect opportunity to use some of the gorgeous ribbon from heaven-knows-where that I found in the attic. I was recently complemented on my Ribbon Treatment (or RT, to the cool kids), so I tried some light "puckering" with ZipDry. Yikes, I'm hooked. Guess who bought more ribbon today‽ For the wings, I used some of the red-and-yellow paper I distressed for my slider card. For the "lace" element, I cut a scrap of glittered paper with scallop scissors and added the holes with my Crop-O-Dile punch.
