Love is in the air...

...todays card was inspired by the tip top tuesdays layers sketch.
As we know the year is flying by and valentines day will soon be upon us
I think this is why most of the challenges are valentines inspired.

I just adore this digi image by Krista Smith at saturated canary
she is called 'Queen of Hearts'
as always it is a pleasure to use my promarkers to colour,
be it stamps or digis.

I found this lovely design paper in my local craft store MB Crafts.
The colour scheme is set by crafty ribbon 'love is red and black'.
The little black hearts are from 'add some sparkle' 
they have some lovely little blingy bits.

The card with LOVE on it is a lovely design paper 
with many different sentiments, hearts and roses, 
this can be used as one sheet 
or as I have done and cut them out to use separately.
Again this paper was sourced from my local craft store.

I love using ribbon in my designs 
and this sheer scarlet ribbon is from my stash.
I feel it just adds that 'je ne sais quois'.
The flowers are also from my stash,
a lovely xmas present from my friend.
