Embroidered Valentine's Banner

 I decided against another wreath on my front door.  So... I made a felt banner and embroidered it with ribbon.  It took me about three evenings in front of the TV to do all the hand work but it was worth it.  
This little wooden ornament I picked up from Michael's in one of their dollar bins was my inspiration.  I wanted to cut all the intricate details but they were just too small to make it work.  
As I was stitching the hearts on I decided to stuff them for some added dimension.  I used 1/8th inch satin ribbon for the flowers and stems.
