Love Stuck

Sorry for my late posting - I've been struggling with a migraine as well as trying to help out with the DIY, not a good combination as the one aggravates the other.  But here I am at last with my DT card for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge "Love Struck".  Our sponsor for this challenge is a favourite of mine, Bunny Zoe's Crafts with a £10 certificate for our winner.

I have used the adorable Lili of the Valley stamp 'I do' and coloured with my Copics - not much colouring as I wanted to keep her gown predominantly white just adding a little RV000 around the lace edge and in the folds and then a touch of Stardust Stickles.  His tux is coloured with the cool greys and the darker pinks are RV32 & 34 as they are the best match to the pink papers from the Spring Chic pack I'm breezing my way through!

Here's the card.  I found the little heart stamp with the swirls in my box, it is ancient and came as one of a set of three wood mounted stamps, another of the designs is the scribbled heart I've stamped on the plain diecut pink heart layer.  I cut out the swirl hearts and fixed with 3d pads to add a little interest to the top of the card.  I've used Orchid Pink Brilliance pearlescent ink for the stamping and on the edges of the layers.  And you can see some of the flowers I made and showed you yesterday, these have pink stamen centres then little AB gems to pick up the Stickles, and as there are hearts on the same sheet I added 3 to the bottom corner for even more bling!

The Marianne dies I used on this card are:
large scallop white heart and pink heart CR1225
little scallop white heart with pink heart centre COL1307
flowers created from flower dies in CR1203
pink stamens from LR0105
pink skeleton leaves from LR0156

The Fab 'n' Funky challenge is for Valentine's or Hearts and their prize is from LOTV - always an incentive for me to join in!  The Kreative Stamping Friends also have the Valentine's or Hearts theme, while My Time To Craft and Incy Wincy Designs both have Love is in the Air as their theme.
