Ruby's Rainbow Challenge - For the One I Love

 
The challenge at Ruby's Rainbow Challenge Blog is to create a card or project for the "one you love." 
 
For my card, I created a winter themed card for the one I love!  I used the Doodle Pantry Snowbirdie digital stamp set.  I really enjoy creating round shaped cards so used my spellbinders round and scallop dies to create the card.  I embellished with some small adhesive pearls and then created a bow for the top of the card.
 
We hope you'll play along and create a card or project for the one you love!  You'll find the Ruby's Rainbow Challenge  HERE.
