With Love

I've had this cute Don and Daisy stamp  from Marianne Design for a while now (along with another one that hadn't seen ink) so decided the time was right to play!  The challenge on the Marianne's Design Divas challenge blog for the last few weeks has been to create something with pink in it somewhere - so that's what I've done!

I've coloured the stamped image with my Copic pens then cut out into a square before adding the faux stitches with MD die LR0161 and matting with a scallop Nestie cut from ivory card.  The pretty background paper is from a MD pretty paper pad I've had a while, PB7039, called Warm Winter Wishes, but this pattern is perfect for Valentine's too!

Here's my card, it's an easel card created from the bit left over when I cut my small square bases.  I've overhung the edges but made sure everything would fit in the small square envelope (the pile is very slowly getting smaller) and once folded flat it's not too thick.  I've embellished with various MD die cuts and finished things off with pink pearls.  So, my touches of pink for the challenge are in the pearls, Daisy's dress and shoes, and the other touches of pink in the image and on the paper.

The Marianne Design dies I used for my card are:
large background scalloped heart - CR1225
small scalloped heart - COL1307
butterfly - LR0158
flowers - LR0111
swirls leaves - LR0112
fronds - LR0106

I can also enter my card into the Crafty Catz challenge where love is in the air, with Oldie but a goodie where it's Valentine's, and at Fussy and Fancy Friday for Be My Valentine.
