WOJ Challenge # 15...Vixen, Comet, Cupid...!!!

Today while blog hopping I saw the most beautiful card by my friend, Michele! She was following along with challenge # 15, a sketch, on the WOJ challenges blog! Well, I went right over to WOJ Challenges and printed Katharina's fabulous sketch and got to work!

I knew exactly what I wanted to do, as, I have been mulling over this idea for a week or so! I bought this fab Hero Art sentiment stamp at a boxing day sale and thought it would be great for next years Christmas cards. Then I thought maybe...just maybe...I could get some use out of it before then!

Now, the fact that this is a little twist on a Valentine's day card was totally lost on my dear hubby! Now, he's got me a little unsure about this card and if I pulled it off or not! what do ya think!?

I cut a 6x6 cardbase from a sheet of Pomegranate Bazzill cardstock and used a sheet of Cherry Cordial from my 6x6 BG Bittersweet pad. I matted it on Bazzill cardstock in, Dusk. I cut the scalloped border in Dusk using my SU slot punch.

I stamped the image of Charlotte and "Cupid" on Georgia Pacific paper with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured it in with my Copic markers and twinkling H2Os. I cut and embossed the image with my circle Nesties. Then, sponged around the edges of the image with Metallic rub-ons.

Following the sketch, I used the wide grey grosgrain ribbon from American Craft and this great fancy marrowed edge ribbon that I picked up at Crop Circles in Peterborough, one day when I was working up there. I don't have the name of it, as, I bought it off the bolt, but I just love it!!! I got some in orange too! The Hero Art sentiment is stamped on Crushed Berry and then I circled "Cupid". I then cut it into the tag and inked the edges. Finally I added a few Prima flowers with some BG Bittersweet brads and some crystal Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look-see!!!
