Paper Smooches February Challenge #1

Hello there!!  It's the first of the month, and that means it's time for a new Paper Smooches Challenge!  This challenge runs from February 1st through February 14th, and the theme is LOVE!

To create my card, I started off with a piece of 4" x 5.25" polka dot paper from the fabulous new Half Moon Paper pack, which I watercolored with Distress Inks.  With minimal water, this worked beautifully.  To the bottom of that panel, I added a piece of striped paper from the same paper collection, separated with a thin strip of black cardstock.  I stamped and colored the bigger cluster of flowers from the Blossoming Buds stamp set and tucked it behind the new I Heart You diecut.  I added a scattering of tiny hearts cut using the Hearts dies, and some white gel pen accents before mounting the panel on a horizontal A2 white card base.

I Love You

There are three great prizes up for grabs!  You can find out more on the Paper Smooches blog!  You have until February 14th to add your project to the gallery for your chance to win!  I hope you will join us! :)

Thanks for stopping by! :)
