RR#46 Spring Roses - Valentine Cart

Did you have a good weekend? Did your favorite team win the Superbowl? I am not much on football but I always check out the half time show.  You'll find me in the kitchen or sneaking off for some crafty time.  
In the past my hubby would invite his friends over to watch the game and play poker, but this year he passed. He's been working so hard lately that he needed time to catch up on his zzz's. Superbowl Sunday is always Scout Sunday too. It's always wonderful to see all the boys in uniform at mass.... after all a scout is reverent right?                                                                                                Time for another Ribbon Reel Challenge.  Check out this yummy inspiration photo chosen by Zuzana - isn't it gorgeous?  The challenge this week is called Spring Roses and you are to use Yellow and Pink and add Ribbon, a Flower and Lace or Twine.  I made a pink Valentine flower cart and topped it with pretty pink and yellow roses and seam binding.  I kept my background blue like the one in the photo.  I cut the little hearts from a stamp of swirly candy and popped a gem in the center.
Here's my finished card...
