I Love You

Hi again!  Hope you're having a good day! I'm back with my second post of the day and I have to make it quick because I don't want to miss the deadline for one of the challenges I'd like to enter.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Cherry Cobbler and the patterned papers are from the Basic Grey Picadilly 12x12 paper collection.  My sweet image is Hugs and Kisses from Saturated Canary.  Krista generously offered her as a freebie on her blog recently.  I don't think she is in the store right now.   I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some white polka dots to the patch on her skirt and one of the hearts in the box.  I added a bit of sparkle to the lace trim on the hearts with Diamond Stickles.  I cut her out with my Cameo and popped her up on foam tape.  The image frame is a heart doily from Saskia.  I found the cut file on one of the online Silhouette forums (Silhouette Plus, I think).  It is cut out of Cherry Cobbler with the Cameo.  The sentiment "label" is from Create With TLC.  Paulette generously shared it as a freebie this past week. I think it's so fun! A bit of white lace, three roses from my stash and a few adhesive pearls finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:
