With Love

Hello everyone

Challenge 175 starts today at Glitter N Sparkle and this week  Love is in the Air.

My DT inspiration card was made using the beautiful Image Aurora from The EastWind.

I have used papers from my stash and distressed and torn the edges before adding vintage photo distress inks, a doily heart was inked with tattered rose and vintage photo, as were the edges of my image.  Image was coloured with promarkers and glitter added to areas of flowers and dress (not showing in photo sorry) .Sentiment was stamped in espresso ink and same distress inks were used before punching out heart shape, the two other hearts were in my stash.  I also added some vintage lace and the gorgeous roses which I had been keeping....just couldn't use them lol, until now as I thought they complemented Aurora perfectly.
Hope my card inspires you to pop over to the blog and join the challenge, look forward to seeing you there.
