Love Card ~ Xs, Os & Bows

When I saw this great checkerboard folder I just loved the mixture of the grid and distressing around the edges and thought it would look great with the edges torn.
I wanted to stick with the tic-tac-toe theme so I thought crossed ribbon would work.
I wanted to try stamping the sentiment on the ribbon for a different look.
I went through one of my punch drawers and found the heart, the bow, and the X & O to add.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front embossed using the Checkerboard folder from the Sizzix Checkerboard & Cracked Texture Fades set.
*Sentiment from the Small Phrases from Verve Stamps.
*Bow punch from Martha Stewart.
*Heart punch from EK success.
*X & O punches from an alphabet punch set brand unknown.
*Stazon Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*Ribbon from Celebrate It.
May your day always be filled with love.
