The 49# Challenge for The Paper Shelter - "Love is in the Air"

Good Morning Everyone, only fourteen days to Valentines Day, doesnt time fly when your having fun, well weve now reached our 49th Challenge and for this one we want to see your "Love" Cards so its "Love is in the Air" Challenge this time, and as always our very generous sponsers are Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering you a gift Certificate for $20.

to spend on their website, thats providing you have used one of their products on your card and are picked by random org, but even if you havent they will still give you three of their stunning digi stamps of your own choice. So its a really fabulous prize.
Before I tell you all about my card I would like to introduce you to the eight new Design Team members, five of who will be joining my "A" Team for our next Challenge and two who will be joining Maries "B" Team for her next one to, and they are Lorraine, Marcea, Ellen, Kathleen, Julie, Bente, An and Kim, I do hope that you will go and visit their blogs and see what stunning work they all do.
And now here is my Card for this Challenge.

And I chose "Pepe in Love" and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card and then used my copic pens to colour him afterwards I used the Heart Nestabilitie Die to cut him out and the scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one that was sent to me as a freebie from Whimsey Stamps and I felt it was just right for this image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with one of the gorgeous papers from the same "Pepe in Love" digi paper set, and you will find them here. Its a beautiful pink background with various shades of pink and beige flowers on, and then I used my Memory box border heart die to cut out the side piece from red card and the little punched out hearts Ive scattered all around the main image (this is my tip for the cut outs from your die cuts).
I then positioned my mounted image to the right hand side and the sentiment below. Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go across to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of my very talented "A" Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully it will encourage you to take part in this "Love is in the Air" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
