"Love" Tag Card

Hi, what freezing cold weather we're having!  My windscreen was still frozen at 1pm today!  I'd like to share a card with you which I've made for a few challenges that I really wanted to enter:

The first is Channa's challenge over at Get Creative - she's asked us to make a card with a tag on it, along with some fabric.  The second  is The Stamp Man whose challenge this fortnight is to "Use Red - a little or a lot, your choice", and the third is The Spicy Supply Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations, who would like us to "Use Ribbon" (lovely samples by the DTs for these challenges).  I decided to combine them to see what I could come up with, and here it is:

I've used Kraft corrugated cardstock for the base, with a little JB Cough Syrup ink (I love this colour) around the edges, and made it as a stand up card:
I used a Melissa Frances script dp, which I inked up with a little DI Old Paper & Pumice Stone, stamped some CI flourishes from the corners, then added a frame coloured with JB Cough Syrup Ink, and mounted it onto some red cardstock.

The tag, also made from Kraft corrugated cardstock, is removable due to the card being a stand up one, so that you can write a message to your loved one on the back (the inspiration for this came from this month's CS!)...
...and it sits in the frame nicely.  It has the same CI flourishes stamped on it, a TH adage ticket, a couple of tiny red hearts, and some red and cream ribbon tied around the top.  Behind the tag sits one red heart.  I used some red silky ribbon and twisted it round to form some little roses, to which I added some tiny pearls.

Stand up cards are a first for me, so I hope you like it!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

This card is fab, the colours are great and having a little peek-a-boo pocket is such a cool idea.
