My DT card for Pennys Love is in the air challenge

Here is the card I made for our challenge over at Pennys this fortnight. Our theme is Love is in the air, a nice easy one with Valentines day coming up. We are lucky to have 2 sponsors for this challenge

with the following prize


so hop on over HERE to join in the fun.

I started by making a heart shaped easel card with my nesties. I printed off some red hearts on white background paper from a Pink Petticoat download and cut using nesties ans stuck to the card. I printed off the words With buckets of love in red and cut using nesties again.

The wonderful image is from Lili of the Valley and is called Buckets of love which I coloured with the following Copics and Promarkers, BG0000, E40, E34, E42, Y00 and Poppy. I added a red spotty bow and a couple of die cut red hearts to finish the card off.
