"Love You" Card

Todays card has beeen created for this weeks Just Magnolia challenge, which is a sketch, and Ive called it the "Love You" card for a reason, in our family whenever we say goodbye to any of the family, we always say "love you" and the other will repeat it back to you, its such a lovely way of letting each other know that we love them and I felt it was appropriate for this card, as Tilda has a basket of hearts in her hand, its from the new Hanging from the Ceiling stamp set, I had it in my Club stamp kit. Ive coloured her with my copic pens then cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her onto a piece of blue card.
My base card is a 7"x 7" white card, with a first layer of dark blue card, and onto this I have layered up one of three papers that I printed from the new Toadally Yours Collection from Nitwit Downloads, its all pretty papers with hearts and leaves on, this first one has a mixture of pink, blue, green and yellow hearts on, the second layer is a blue paper with the same colours on but this time in a leaf spray pattern and Ive cut it in a strip and used my new doily Valentine hearts border punch on the two edges, Ive done the same with the third layer, this one is a patchwork pattern of the papers from this collection. Over these I have stuck a pink heart ribbon across the centre.
Ive then positioned my mounted image to the left hand side in the centre and my stamped sentiment to the bottom on the right. I then created five daisy flowers with my daisy punch from Martha Stewart and stuck some yellow centres in them after which I popped some yellow stickles in the middle, before sticking them to my card down the side of the mounted image Ive arranged some punched out fern leaves and popped the flowers on top.
The last thing Ive done is punched out a couple of the large hearts and then stuck a heart gem in the centre of them.

Love YOU too....great card, I say that to my kids too, everyday, and obviously hubby, my Mum never did that with me, she has a better left hook than an I love her, but I let my kids know each and everyday how much I love them, so it was pretty hard making that MUM card for the sophisticats yesterday, but I had in mind 3 people, YOU, Christine and Stef....I know you are all too young to be my MUM, LOL....I thank god everyday for directing me to Avril xxxx
