and the sponsor for this weeks challenge is Bugaboo Digi Stamps.
This week we have a photo for inspiration and its full of love:
I told you it was full of love....and hugs and kisses and all sorts of wonderful words for Valentines Day. There are so many ways you could be inspired by this. Maybe do something with words, with the colours, with a frame....oh the possibilities.
I really like the design of the picture, as in the horizontal lines. I don't have many word stamps for 'love' that would work well together so decided to go with the universal symbol:
I've been giving my Cuttlebug a real work-out of late, don't know what I would do if it broke!!!
I have a heart die from CAS-ual Fridays that cuts graduating hearts, big to small, all at once. I die cut it 8x from white CS to get these size hearts. I then used it one more time with red CS for the middle one. All of the white hearts were glued directly to the card front, with the red one getting extra special treatment. I cut teeny tiny pieces of foam tape for the red heart to sit on. This makes it really pop out compared to the others. I stamped the sentiment (from Hero Arts 'Year Round Sentiments') in black ink and left it at that.
There are a lot of Valentines Challenges around at the moment and my card can be linked to quite a few:

Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge - H is for........
AAA Challenge - Game 32 - Love, love, love
