~a quick card for Cardpatterns sketch 162~

Happy Hello my crafty friends :)
I'm just stopping in with a quick share for the sketch at Card Patterns this week.

I made a card that could be used for mothers day, a mothers birthday or just to say I love you Mum :)

The stamps, ink, ribbon and cardstock are from Stampin' up, rhinestones and die-namics boarder strips are from The Stamp Spot, and the ribbon slider is one of 200 I got on ebay that I was planning to use on some wedding invitations I have been asked to make, but I think they look too cheap (and they were cheap... go figure lol)
So... if anyone can direct me to some heart shaped rhinestone ribbon sliders available to purchase online, please let link me up in the comment section or email me at jesstheodore(at)optusnet(dot)com(dot)au :) reasonable prices too, I'm making around 50 invitations and I want sliders for both invitations and wedding favours for the guests so don't want to over board $ wise :)

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
Opus Gluei - Challenge #129 Flourishes
Card Makin' Mamas - Getting Girlie
Craft Us Crazy - #25 Happy Mothers Day and/or Flowers

Ok thanks for stopping in today! xx
