With the most "LOVE-ly" of occasions coming I thought I better make a sweet little decoration for my mantle.  Helps me get into the feeling of Valentine's Day I think.  I used a bit of a lot, as you can probably tell.  Paper, Ribbon, Stamps, Doilies, Punches, Embossing Folders, and even Fabric.  It came together quite quickly once I made a couple of patterns. Then I just strung up some of the Natural Cotton Ribbon and used retired clothespins to hold my banner pieces together. 
Here is a closer photo of the main elements of the banner. It sure did turn out sweet.
