Valentine's Day LOVE Banner ! ! !

Happy V-Day, y'all!!! I made a couple of these thinking I'd send one to artiste extraordinaire, Leslie Avila (check her link in my list of favorite places on the left sidebar.) A few weeks back she posted on FB a "play it forward" challenge and I was lucky enough to be her 5th & final participant.

The wonderful ribbons I used on my "LOVE" banner were gifts from May Arts. I've entered this in their Valentine challenge too in addition to the matching card seen below with cute little Tilda.

For the banner I used labels & alphas diecuts from the Cricut Storybook cartridge and a folksy heart from another that I do not recall now. The accordian pleated bases for the letters were fanfolds using the MS scoring board. The tops have hand sewn borders of MS Eyelet lace. All parts were antiqued using walnut ink. The altered art end flags were decorated using lots of misc. items from my stash. Along with double-sided DP from K & Co. No dollars were used in the creation of this fun piece.....DH will be so happy!!
