Nothing Sweeter Than Love

I made this card for the Frosted Designs sketch challenge and as part of the requirements for entering the DT Call.  It is a great sketch and worked well for the image and sentiment I wanted to use.


I embossed the top part of the Whisper White base with my new Cuttlebug folder.  I only did the top part because I wanted the bottom left open for the sentiment.  I always seem to pop-up the sentiment on other card stock and I thought it would be good for me if I tried it directly to the base. I lightly sponged Distress Worn Lipstick over the raised portion of the embossing to add the color.


Card Recipe:
Images: Digi's with Attitude Tigers, Sentiment is from Impression Obsession
Paper: Whisper White, Rose Red
Makers/Inks: Momento Black, Destress Worn Lipstick, Copics - Y17, R81
Embellishments: Wild Orchard roses and leaves, MS hearts edge punch, hearts punch, Spellbinders Lacy Circles, Cuttlebug embossing folder

Have a wonderful day!
