Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - Love is in the Air!

 Woohoo!!  It is time for another challenge over at Whiff of Joy challenge and this fortnight our theme is "Love is in the Air" - perfect for those valentine cards you might be needing soon!  I have used papers from Memory Box distressed with walnut stain distress ink and one oh so cute Henry Mouse from Whiff of Joy.
 This is Henry with Large Rose and he's my favourite from the January release - so cute and the rose is so lush!  I was colouring on kraft the other day and it occurred to me that I had never coloured Henry Mouse on kraft and that he might look really cute as a white mouse so decided to give it a try.  I love how he turned out!  I coloured the rose and pink parts of Henry with copics and then coloured the rest of Henry with pencils.
 The border along the bottom of the image is the Heart Lace border from Whiff of Joy.  The "I love you" is by Magnolia from the winter kit.  I embossed it with bronze embossing powder and I have coloured the heart with copics and covered in stickles.
 This is one of my favourite sentiments - it is by Cat's Life Press from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
 I made all of the roses using the sizzix 3D flower die from the same Memory Box paper and added some black rose leaves with a doohickey die for a striking combination against the red, kraft and white.  I also added some cheesecloth behind the image.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy challenge!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning cards!  Thanks for looking! x
