DYSU Challenge # 58 - Love is in the air!



It's February!



For this week we have two great sponsors:


1 year PDF subscription


Winner's Choice of 3 Digital Stamps

This week I had the opportunity to work with
this adorable little
"BIRDIE BROWN" image!

"Girl with a Rose"

I used the sketch over at Craft's Meow Stamps
They have such wonderful card sketches there!

This little gal was so much fun to paper piece, which has become my second favorite image treatment 
(second to coloring with my Copics,of course!)
The chipboard heart was inked red and heat embossed with clear powder three times to get that thick, rich color.


I was intimidated by the flower, so I simply glued on a Prima bloom that I had in my stash, and glittered it. 
It really added some great texture to the card and made it extra-cute!

This one is going to the Cancer Treatment Center, for sure!

Check out the rest of the Design Teams projects
at Do You Stack Up!
They are terrific!

And because of the special holiday nature of my card,
it was entered into the challenges at:
The Craft's Meow (Sketch)
Simon Says Stamp (Love and Prima product)
C.R.A.F.T Challenge (Valentine)
Delightful Challenges (Love)
Sarah Hurley Challenge (Love is all Around)
Divas by Design (Love)
Sentimental Sundays (Love)
Cupcake Craft Challenge (Red)
