Challenge #85 - The Paper Shelter - "Love Beats All"

Good Morning All, well another week has gone by and over on The Paper Shelter we have now reached our 85th Challenge and for this one is all about "Love Beats All" so we want to see your "Love" theme cards and I bet youve got quite a few of those images in your stash I know I have. Anyway before I start I want to let you know more about our sponsors Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering you a fabulous prize of $30.

to spend on their website but this is providing you have used one of their products on your cards and believe me they certainly have some fabulous things for sale and at such a reseasonable price, but even if you dont use them you are still able to claim 3 digi images of your own choice, its a win win situation dont you agree?
They also have a 20% discount at the moment so its worth popping over to the website and buying your digi images now.

And now for my card I have used this sweet pair.

Isnt it a gorgeous Wedding image and as I had a fabulous wedding in my family this year it was just right to give my grandson and his new wife a card like this. Ive used "Happy Couple" and you will find it here, and coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut it out then used a larger one and a piece of grey card to create the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of grey card, and for my paper I have used one of the papers from "Happy Couple" and you will also find that here. I stuck it to the base mount and then wrapped a piece of lace around it and then mounted my image towards the right, with the sentiment below.
To finish of I have used some pink roses of several sizes and punched out rose leaves and created a floral spray in the top left hand corner, but to finish of I use some stickles on the roses to make them stand out.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that your will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see for yourself what the rest of the girls have created for your inspiration, and hopefully you to will take part in this weeks "Love is in the Air" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
