OSAAT #44 Love and Valentines

I've been very busy on behalf of One Stitch at a Time this week, making 2 cards with beautiful images from Beary Dust and Robyns Fetish.

Our theme for the first challenge of 2011 is Love and Valentines! There are some gorgeous new love themed images in the Shop from the Digi Artists so we'd love for you to take a peek! We are lucky enough to have Digis with Attitude on board as our Sponsor for this challenge!

I've coloured this sweet Beary Dust image with Promarkers, cut out with Nesties and inked around the edges with my Antique Linen distress inkpad. The paper is from the Summer Bloom pack by Papermania a which has also been inked with Antique linen, and I have embossed the card blank directly with cuttlebug swiss dots folder. The card candy is from craftwork cards and the ribbon and ticket sentiment are from stash. I have added just a touch of stickles to the hearts to give a little bit of sparkle, and glossy accents to their shiny noses :)
