Fluttering Heart - Another Valentine's Day card?

Yes, another one.

I'm pretty proud of this card because I actually tried a new technique - ribbon braiding!  Not sure if there's a tutorial out there, but it's easy.  You can probably just figure out by looking at the card.  All I did was punch 3 holes on each side, threaded the ribbon through one set of holes, braided it, and threaded it again through the other set of holes.  It's been a while since I've done anything new on my cards.  Oh, and I also used two different Stickles so that the glitter on the heart has some shading.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Stamp: Unity; Papers: BasicGrey; Ink: Copics; Accessories/tools: button, ribbon, rhinestones, MS border punch, black pearls
