3 Challenges in 1!

Hey, Sorry I haven't been posting in a while but as I work full time finding time to craft during a work audit is nigh impossible. The elements in this card I made gradually when I managed to catch some 'crafting moments' but it really only came to fruition when I was looking at the challenge blogs. This card is for my patient, caring and loving husband who actually encourages me to buy more stash! I've entered this card for 3 Challenges:

  • Penny Black Saturday Challenge #35 ~Romance (Although its late!)

  • Card Positioning Systems #102 ~ Sketch

  • DutchDare ~ Buttons & Bows

The stamps featured are all Penny Black Inc, main is called 'Love Graffiti' and wording from the 'Every Which Way' Critters set. Main image coloured in with Touch, KureColor and Whispers pens. The 'Love' glittered heart has been created by embossing red card using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and cutting it out before layering it and carefully finishing it with a coat of red glitter glue (leave to dry!). White frill border is using up scraps of white card (how many of them do stampers collect LOL), running them through the Cuttlebug with the borders range of embossing folders and cutting it out carefully. Joined both to create a space for a strip of red polka dot paper salvaged from a Christmas card (thrifty don't you think?). Paper is Papermania 'Warm Tones' paper collection.

Well, you either love it or hate the colour combo as my husband hates pink so I was forced to go with a purple and red combo. Please let me know whether you love or hate it LOL!
