Love is in the air...

Hey there!

Can you believe I didn't find a single thing to buy at the crafty store yesterday?! It's not like I went in with anything specific in mind but still, talk about disappointing. I always hope to find a little somethin' that might inspire a card or two but no such luck. Oh well, I guess it just gives me an excuse to go back and check again in a month or so. 

Today I've got a card for the sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things. Of course I made another Valentine because hey, it's just that time of year. This go round I chose to ink up Love is in the Air Pure Innocence and paired her with paper from the Simple Stories Hugs and Kisses collection. I even did a bit of paper piecing with her shirt to really pull the whole thing together. I stayed pretty true to the sketch and even used an MFT stitched scallop border die to cut the bottom of the center panel exactly like the sketch inspiration. I also pulled out the white embossing powder for my sentiment which made me feel extra crafty, LOL! All in all, another cute and quick card that I am quite happy with.  :)

Ok, time for hair and make-up.
