Love is in the air.....

... Is the theme of this week's challenge over at the Allsorts Challenge Blog in which I would like to enter this card.

Papers and stamps used are from the Fairy Belle Collection that came free with the February edition of Simply Cards & Papercraft mag and are simply gorgeous

 I started by matting a piece of light blue patterned paper on top of a white square card blank. Before sticking it down, I inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink.

I cut a piece of white card and run it through my Grand Calibur using the Darice Swiss Dot embossing folder and inked the entire piece with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I stuck this piece diagonally across the blue patterned paper

I cut a strip of the flower patterned paper about half the size of the blue one and stuck it in the middle of the card.

I diecut a heart from white paper and inked this with Antique Linen Distress ink and stamped the rose with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink several times around the edge of the heart.

I punched a small heart from white card and inked this with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and fixed this with 3d foam to the centre of the big heart.

I stamped the Just for You greeted on a piece of white card and heat embossed before inking the card with the Antique Distress ink and currying it out to fix to the topper. The bow is from the Papermania Portobello kit.
I added some pearls to finish and inked the edges of the card blank with the Victorian Velvet Distress ink.

I hope you like it!
