Love is in the Air



Hello, Happy Tuesday,

Today we have a new challenge posted on the Sweet Stamps Challenge blog

Our theme this week is all about 

LOVE

Each week Sweet Stamps has a new challenge and although you are not required to use a Sweet Stamp, if you have some we would love for you to use them and you will receive a second entry into our draw.

Our prize each week to one lucky winner is a $20.00 gift certificate to Sweet Stamp Store for use on any of our lovely rubber stamps.


For my card I began by making my own bingo card in word then stamped our Vertical Love stamp with Burgundy Shades Ink , cutting each letter separately to affix to the empty block on my card using a small pop dot to add a 3D effect. Background design papers are First Edition Love Letter 6x6 pad. Behind my bingo card I cut Cheery Lynn Design French Pastry Doily die with a solid paper from the Love Letter pad. With my flowers at the top of my card I added Olive Branches by Cheery Lynn Designs. To add a bit of glimmer to my letters I added just a tad of Stickles  - Star Dust

Wouldn't you love to win $20.00 to spend in Sweet Stamp store?

The team and I would love to visit and see your all about LOVE creation.


My card layout was inspired by this 
week's sketch from The Sweet Shop
