{ippity} Hip Hop!

Happy Monday Everyone!

I think we have quite a few participants today so I will keep this short!

I did this card for the {ippity} photo inspiration challenge that you can see on the {ippity} blog here.
It is 2 hearts that are wrapped in ribbon. So this is what I did!
(edited: I forgot last night as I was blogging,that this also qualifys for the New Challenges for Unity as well! To use Hearts! Check out the New Challenge Blog,there are Prizes to be won! and it is one challenge per month so you have lots of time!)
 I used the {ippity} set Music of my Heart for the main image. I used the heart in the set,stamped it several times,cut it out and "wrapped" them together to make the flower petals. I also used nestabilities blossom die for the bottom layer and then a layer of tulle for dimension.
The hearts also have a background stamp of "Dots for Sure"for added interest. The leaves and vine on the card base are from the set "Now and Always",the sentiment is from Music of my Heart.
 I also used Tim Holtz tissue tape at the bottom. The card stock is from GinaK. And the card base is Kraft card stock from GinaK as well. I hope  you like it. It is a little different for me,but I wanted to give it a try since it sounded good in my head last night!! LOL So I guess we will see!
Wanted to give you an update on our new addition! This is Kona, who we rescued a couple weeks ago now! He is doing GREAT!! And he is such a Love!! But I just keep looking at those FEET!!! Yikes! I know he has to grow into them! tehe!

Have a great week!
Blessings and Hugs,
