Tow cards for Valentine's...

Hi everyone,

Today I have two cards to show you. The first one is for our weekly challenge at "A Spoon Full Of Sugar". This week the theme is" Love is in the Air..." :)) Easy right?

I used this beautiful Tilda from Magnolia. The papers are from Basic Gray (Bittersweet collection). I colored the image with my re-inkers from Tim Holtz and added some Prima flowers and white hemp, charm and gems from stash... ( all highlighted items can be purchased from "Roses on Papers").

For my second card I used one of my new stamps from Funky Kits. The stamp is from the Sugar Nellie Collection which, by the way, is always looking for the BEST illustrators to bring us the BEST stamps... Don't you think?.. The stamp is called : True Love so I think it could be perfect for this week's challenge too.

Here is my card.. I didn't apply my typical colors, but I think the final result wasn't bad.. What do you think?.. Purple, brown , silver and gray.

LIM :))

Hi Lim,
I'm finally back online, it's been so frustrating without it this week!
Your cards are both gorgeous and so full of wonderful details. Your Magnolia is so sweet and I love the papers you have used. The Sugar Nellie one has an amazing colour combo, and I just love the ribbons with the charm on each side.
Thanks for playing along on the photo challenge, it was such a sweet photo:)
Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

Hugs, Line
