Say it with LOVE - Challenge #31 @ Lexi's Creations

Morning all! Glad you could stop by today, I hope the new year is bringing you the luck and happiness you wished for! :) Thank you for all the entrants for Challenge #30, well done to the winner and the GD!!

This week at Lexi's Creations, Challenge #31 is 'Say it with Love'. The sponsor this time round is Letraset.

Letraset

Here is my DT take on this challenge:


I used the digi image 'Brooke - Thinking of you' for this card. I paper pieced her pillow using some design paper from American Crafts I Heart You collection. I coloured her in using ProMarkers. (Yikes - sometimes I find I can colour in at a reasonable standard, and then other times I'm really disappointed - I need a lot more practice with my ProMarkers me thinks. Hopefully the skills will come to me in time!)


This card started out with a Naturals Ivory card base from SU! measuring 5.50" x 4.25". I used some Chocolate box Core'dinations cardstock for the embossed strip across the bottom, which was embossed with Basic Grey Sizzix embossing folder - Diamonds (A2 Large) and then gently sanded. I used some Pretty in Pink cardstock and ribbon from SU! I stamped the 'love' sentiment from the Tiny Tags stamp set and punched them out with the Jewellery Tag punch and attached them to the ribbon using a mini white safety pin.

I added a Dot Flourish from Inkadinkadoo in SU! Rose Red ink behind my sentiment to fill in the blank space, I added star dust Stickles to the dots. Finally - I rounded the top corner then went around the whole outside of the card with a brown fine liner and added in some faux stitching - I can't help myself! LOL.
