Challenge #247 - "Love is in the Air" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well this weeks theme is all about "Love" and Im sure that we are always getting either requests for that special card or even making one for someone we are very close to, so Im sure it wont be to difficult for you to find a relevant image to use for this Challenge.
But before I show you my own card I had better tell you who is our sponsor and of course its our very generous Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter

and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website here, and if you have used one of their gorgeous images you will be entitled to the whole amount but even if you havent you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice. But please if you are going to enter more than once, you are able to take part 3 times but one of those must carry one of our images please.
And now for the big reveal

This image is titled "Stylish Flirting" and you will find it here, I printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie Die to cut it out, and used a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card, the backing paper comes with the "Stylish Flirting" image and you will find it here to, I then placed on top two heart shaped doilies and placed my mounted image in the middle. The sentiment was a stamp from my stash and this was stamped and mounted in the same way as the image and placed in the bottom right hand corner.
The final flourish is the bouquet of rose buds that have been tied with a large red organza ribbon bow and placed in the top right hand corner. I then used six blue pearls in the top left and bottom left hand corners.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Love is in the Air" Challenge.
