Whiff of Joy Challenge - Love

Woohoo!! Time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy challenge and this week we have a theme of "love" for you. Perfect for getting those Valentines cards done! Thank you for all of your gorgeous entries last week to Gio's sketch, I know she was thrilled that you all liked it so much!

I made my card entirely from three little scraps from my scrap box - don't you just love being able to do that!! I managed to do the card layout and all the flowers with them!! They are from the K&Co Madelaine paper pad which I can only bare to use because I have another untouched one LOL!!
I have used Henry Hugging Heart, isn't he adorable! I've coloured him with copics and mounted him onto a Stempelglede grunge heart stamped with tattered rose and worn lipstick distress inks. I have added stickles around the central heart.
The flowers have been punched with a mixture of EK success retro punches and MS hydrangea punch. I have distressed the edges with Tim Holtz paper distresser and worn lipstick distress ink. The heart buttons are from my stash and the gem brads are from the Hobby House.
The pearls and gems are part of a larger Prima swirl that I chopped up.
The sentiment is also Whiff of Joy from the Summer Kit. Speaking of which, have you seen the new stamp kit that is on preorder from Whiff of Joy?? It is gorgeous! I have stamped the sentiment with worn lipstick and inked the edges with tattered rose. All the edges of the card have been covered in stickles.
I hope you like it and can join in with us this week. Pop over to the challenge blog for a drool at the rest of the DT's gorgeous cards!!! x
