Heart Song Inspiration Challenge #17

Hi Everyone!!
It's Monday, so it's Heart Song Inspiration Challenge time!! ;)

This week it's time to "Use Ribbon and/or a Tag"!
I thought I'd make my ribbon really stand out, and made a scrunchy triple bow in a strong feature colour. I was planning to hang a little tag saying 'Love', but I couldn't make it look right lol!
I used the sweet Heart Song Designs "Love Birds" image. It was so quick and easy to colour, and adorable for lots of cards. I also used the Sweet Stop Sketch for this week.

I hope you can play along too! You don't have to use a Heart Song image (but of course we would love you to!). You could win an image of your choice from the Heart Song Designs store!

Hope you like how my Love Birds turned out...

And a close up of the cute little birdies...

Thanks for visiting and hope you can play along with us at Heart Song Inspirations this week!
