Sending You Love

Hi there!  I'm back!  Yes, this is my second post today.  If you are looking for my Little Miss Muffet DT card, please scroll down one post.  I'm popping in to share a card I made for a few challenges I like to do.  So many of them have the "love" theme going on right now given that Valentine's Day is just around the corner!

Here is another Valentines/Love creation from me for today:

My card base and mats are GKD Turquoise Sea and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic 6x6 pad.  These papers have all my favorite colors in them!  My sweet image is A Pen Friend from Elisabeth Bell for Belles 'n Whistles which is still available at Loves Rubberstamps here.  I stamped her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Stickles here and there for a little extra sparkle.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I added three beveled pearl hearts along with some striped ribbon and a bow.  The larger pearl heart button I made myself using 6 hearts punched from cardstock which I covered with my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  A tiny Baker's Twine bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by again!  Now that I am back, I will be around to visit your blogs soon!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Elphine House #37 (hearts and ribbon)
No Matter Which #6 (ribbon and bows)
Fab 'n Funky #157 (hearts/Valentines)
