Multi-Border Valentine Card with DIY RIbbon Rosette

Here's a pretty project....I created this using a few different punches and one Spellbinder's border die.  The only hard part is choosing your papers....understandable if you have a billion (ahem) sheets of untouched designer series cardstock!  But I did it by narrowing down a few sheets that seemed to go together and I have a real fondness for kraft and pink combination, so maybe it wasn't that hard, lol.

Multiple Borders created with punches, die. Handmade ribbon rosette. 

Its pretty self-explanatory, and perhaps the only real note is that I created a ribbon rosette by threading a ' wave ' pattern onto a strip of ribbon and pulled the threads so it curled up on itself.  Attach the two ends and voila - you have a rosette!  I finally got to use a brad too that has been in my collection for-evah!!! I hated to finally delve into a red pleated ribbon roll .....maybe I should titled this post - " using up your supplies"!

Another note, I " painted " the card's edges with a bit of white paint for a more shabby feel.....hey, have fun making your own!!!!
