Love is in the air

It's time to use our favourite colour combo over at Bee Crafty this fortnight and I've used pink and grey, I meant to use black as well but ended up not doing - as you do! I used this gorgeous free download by Merrigan, I've not used it before and thought it was too lovely to note use and it's free!!


I'm joining in with these challenges:
I printed the Love image in grey and then creased my card to the left and cut around the word to create my shaped card. I printed it again with paterned papers and did a little paper piecing, mainly because my grey pens have run out! My dotty paper is SU and the grey one has been loitering in my stash for a while half used so not sure who makes it.  I embossed a strip of pink card with some buttons and added a punched edge in the grey card.

Please pop over to see the DT creations, they're gorgeous. I'm shattered now as have been to Peterborough today to a fab day arranged by Monica and her team - but more about that tomorrow!

Thanks
Victoria

  4. A lovely card Victoria.

    I'm so glad all the snow has gone, luckily we didn't get snowed in down here, but I'm sure it was awful up where you are - still the kids loved it and I have to say that everything looks really drab now!!

    Looking forward to next Saturday!
