Have you ever seen a Cupid Lamb? LOL! Me neither ... but makes for a good sentiment -
"Happy Valentine's Day to Ewe..."
A simple card with a ribbon, faux brads and sparkle on the wings. Boys don't like a bunch of frou-frou!TIP: Just a note on the construction of the faux brads - I used two different sized hand punches (like what you would use to punch a hole in the top of a tag for example) for the little circles. I used card stock the color I wanted, glued them down to the four corners of each of the two layers and then used Diamond Glaze to make them shiny and rounded like a real brad. This is a great way to make brads that match your colors.
