I Love You

Hello again, my crafty friends! I'm thrilled to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #23 - Who Loves Ya, Baby! Our wonderful sponsors this time are A Day For Daisies and QKR Stampede! Come play with us! We want to see your projects with the word "Love" used somewhere on them! ;)

I used the adorable QKR Stampede "In Love" digi for my Valentine. I paper pieced the balloons and the little doll's clothing using light and medium shades of pink cardstock. This is another project that I feel real good about... I've decreased that UFO pile by one more piece! UFO stands for UnFinished Objects, by the way! I had created this card base with floral background and pink/red ribbon for a project a couple months ago and decided not to use it after all. So needless to say, I was ecstatic when I discovered it went perfectly with my Valentine idea. Yessss! ;)


What a darling little doll! I incorporated the light and medium shades of pink and the red from the ribbon into the rest of the card. I normally don't do pink and red together, but I like this. And of course I used the new Bow It All for that stunning hot pink double-loop bow!


Here's a peek at the inside - I kept it simple with a stamped Valentine sentiment.


I'm entering this sweet Valentine into the following challenges:


Recipe:
  • GKD Pure Luxury white cardstock; Colorbok light and medium pink cardstock; Marco's black cardstock
  • Black and white floral paper from the Papermania Capsule collection
  • QKR Stampede In Love digital image
  • Copics: E000/01, R81, Y17
  • Spellbinders Scalloped Long Rectangles and Scalloped Circles dies
  • Stamp Camp Simple Sentiments Set 1
  • Paisley ribbon; hot pink organza ribbon
  • Large white flat-back pearls

I hope you've found a little inspiration to play in our Love challenge! To get your mojo going, be sure to check out all the fun digital images that A Day For Daisies and QKR Stampede have to offer! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
Hugs,
Leslie

Great card! She is definately a cutie. I love the background and balloons. The more I see with the bow it all the more I want one-maybe someday.

love the cheeks, the legs, buttons and the lace showing under her dress!!
and what a great choice of papers and colors! the dark paper makes the pink and red stand out so well that it gives a very tender look to the project!
