All You Need is Love

Hi there!! Am I the only one that has no idea where the first 2/3 of January went??? We finally have winter temperatures here in Saskatchewan……but only for about a week.  All in all we’ve been quite spoiled with the relatively (for here) mild temperatures and lack of snow this year!! Anyway, time for a brand new challenge at the Sheepski Designs Facebook page.  All of our challenges are ATG, but there is also an optional theme to help with choosing what image to use, if you wish.  Our Jan/Feb theme is “That Little Thing Called Love”.   I browsed around in the Sheepski Etsy shop for some kind, trying to decide on a “lovey” image, and I finally chose Floral Heart.  This image comes with the heart merged with a butterfly, as well as with the heart and butterfly separate.  I chose to just use the heart for this wedding card I made.  I colored it up with my Copics, then used a Penny Black stamp to add the sentiment before fussy cutting it out.  I’m trying to use some colors that I normally avoid, and this particular green is one of them.  Goes nice with the image though…….  I embossed the edge of the green with a little embossing folder that I got as a complimentary gift with a magazine a number of years ago.  I added the strip of sheer black ribbon, and matted it with black, before doing up the bow.  I added the bow after assembling everything else, because I had a back-up plan…..which is usually a good idea with me and bows…..but it worked perfectly!!!! Maybe a trend for 2019????  I finished the card off by adding some liquid pearl accents.  Here’s a closeup of the embossing and bow 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
