I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day. We had a lovely day (a rare Saturday off for Dave) and I was taken out for lunch as well as receiving two lovely boxes of chocolates.
I did manage to sneak an hour away to make a start on this card and I finished it off earlier today. I've flipped the sketch as I preferred my vertical panel on the left. All the papers are K & Co and I love their vintage feel. They are quite an unusual colour though, a sort of paprika with a bit of pink and some tiny blue dots. Much as I love my distress inks the colours are quite limited so I used Prismas for this card, added highlights with an Inkessentials pen and a little glitter to Chloe's hair bow. I used chalk to shade the background and stamped the swirl (a freebie with CM&P magazine) with Bark Versacolor ink. The brads are Lasting Impressions, the sentiment was a freebie when I bought some stamps from FunkyKits and the corner flourish is a Cuttlebug die.
Only a couple more days until the launch of the Truly Scrumptious Blog which is so exciting! Some of the DT have sent their pictures already and the cards are fab so I hope you will all join us on Wednesday!
