Love is all you need...


Hello bloggers,
I am back with a challenge card featuring the beautiful image "Hug" by Ruth from A Passion for Stamps.
I cut the image out -after colouring with Copics- with Spellbinders circle dies and matted on pink card. The sentiment is computer generated and printed onto white card, matted with pink again. I used SU punches for the sentiment and mat.
Papers are Basic Grey - Eva collection (Duchesse and Courtier) and the flowers were given to me by my lovely friend Julie, aren't they gorgeous? It was really hard to use them actually, I tend to hoard beautiful things rather than use it... The leaves were done with a Woodware punch.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
My Grafico - Anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - 123 recipe (1 image, 2 papers, 3 flowers)
Dutch Dare - Sketch

Hope you like my offering today and thank you if you choose to leave a comment, always appreciated!
