Love is in the air

Judging by the amount of challenges wanting hearts, romance etc love is definitely in the air. The first card I have to show you is another sneak peek from the new SWALK range from Crafter's Companion. You will recognise this image from the CDs and on Saturday you will be able to buy it along with the other 5 new stamps. The sentiment comes separately to the image so you could also use this image for Valentines and Anniversaries. The papers are all from the SWALK CDs. I just love the colouriser on these CDS and went for a purple romantic card as a change from red or pink. Hearts and border were cut with MS punches and a Nestie die. I then embossed the glitter card with swiss dots.

Now although there are so many challenges I could enter this card into I am limiting myself to the following:
Allsorts It must be love
Stamptacular Hearts gone wild
Crafty Cardmakers Hearts
Stamp with fun Love
A spoon full of sugar Let's see some love
2 Sisters The world is your oyster (pearls)

My second card features one of my favourite Pollycraft images which I just love for Anniversary cards. I have gone for a very different colour scheme, picking up the colours from the beautiful BG Wisteria papers. I added a heart doiley which I chalked to bring down the whiteness. Hearts were die cut with a Nestie and embossed with swiss dots.
Challenges:
Pollycraft Fab sketch and love theme
Stamp Something February digi
Basic Grey Hearts
Incy Wincy Love
Teddy Stampers Love bears

I just love this little image Marianne, it is so cute and you've coloured it beautifully. I love the blue colours on the papers and the lilacs of the hearts. And those punchie hearts are lovely.
