C4C71, CTD125 I Love You....and more!

Aloha friends!!!

What a week it has been....I wish I could say I'm glad it is weekend, but unfortunately mine is cut short...I have to work today!!! We are hosting a conference....wanna check it out??? Your can read all about it right HERE. Hope everything will run smooth :) we have over 400 people coming?!?

Anyway, I know you are not here to chat about my work...how about a card??? Maria is still our host over at the Crazy 4 Challenge ~ C4C71!!! She has created this Sketch for us to try and I hope you have a chance to play along ?!?


Here is my take on it.....




Can you tell I tweaked the Sketch a bit??? I created a regular size card instead of the square size!!! The super sweet birdie image is from the Meljen's digi design and it's called Love Birds....perfect for two *love birds*...LOL!!! I think I'll give this card to my hubby for Valentine :) !!!

The colors were inspired by this weeks CTD125 ~ Pear Pizzazz, Kraft and Blushing Bride.


The image was colored with Copic Markers ~ C0, C1, C2, E00, E55, YG67, YG91, RV23, R000 and Colorless Blender. I found this sweet Heart Doily at Walmart...it came with some bigger white ones..... definitely a must have :) !!! The DP is from an older SU leftover stash and the rest of the card was embellished with some Ribbon, Heart Trinkets, Silver Pearls, a punched out Heart Border. At last I added some piercing...voila!

Please make sure to swing by the C4C Blog to check out all the fabulous ideas the Crazy Team had!!! I'll be back later with another new card...see ya then!!! Hugs ~S~

What an adorable digi image! Your layout is fantastic....I love that doily! I'm going to have to dig out that heart border punch because I've seen you use it a lot lately! (I already had to go buy an embossing folder that you used the other day!) :)
