Grunge Rock Card for A La Card Monkey and Valentine Blog Hop!!

 Hi Blogging Friends!!

I was trying to think outside the box this week and not do a Girly Valentine, But it kind of turned out Girly-Man! lol That's ok, my Husband loves Girly-Man cards!! How could he not... he loves me so! lol

I am in love with Pennants, I know... I don't use them a lot but I think about them all the time, I even dream about them!! (ok I need more therapy)

Ahhh it's all about love this week at A La Card Monkey! I have been telling Terry for weeks "I Want Pennants"! and Now I got them!!

Because this week it's a Valentine Challenge at A La Card Monkey. Everyone can add there cards to my Valentine Blog Hop!! Yea!!!

Anyone can  join the fun, here is all you have to do.

1. Anything goes, Card, 3D project it just has to be Valentines.
 2. Add the Hop to your Post, by using the code from Linky tools.

I will pick a weekly winner on Mondays, then the big 4 week Winner on Tuesday February 14th Valentines Day!! I am giving the Winner a Valentine Owl... can you see how cute that is going to be??!!

I put a lot of pearls on this card, including on the Guitar.

I used the 1/8 inch hole punch on the pennants. Then threaded the ribbon through each pennant. The (my world) is punched with the word window, then cut again with the word window punch to make it shorter.

Great card! I love how the pennants almost blend into the background and the small detail of stringing them with the ribbon. And thanks for the blog hop tip. I am having so much fun with with A La Card Monkey this week!

Shirley, love the unique look of the card and all of your extra special touches. The pleated red ribbon looks really cool and the glitter letters "rock" are the perfect finishing touch!
