It Must Be Love Love Love!

Updated with better photo's!
It's Sunday already & time for a new challenge at 
Whoop  whoop!
This week for Challenge # 155 the theme is
The DT were given the adorable Love Birds Image to work with!
Debbie, the lovely boss has put all her New Release Images on special offer 
& you can pick them up for a mere 59p at the moment! 
Don't miss out these offers won't last for ever!!!
So, on with the business in hand!

 Here's my card!

I used an A6 tent fold card base.
I coloured the image using my trusty promarkers & cut it using the 
Out Of The Box Technique & an oval nestie!
I then inked the edges with distress ink
You can find a great tuorial here for the Out Of The Box Technique.
The layout was a sketch 

I've had to search but I eventually found it!

The paper is from the Ad Lib Collection by Bo Bunny.
I edged the white panels & paper with distress ink also.

The lower white panel was edged with a heart border punch & backed with the red card.
The word love is a Papermania mulberry greeting which has been in my stash forever.
It originally said With Love but I chopped the With off!
The roses are from Sweetpeapollys Crafty Things & the  flourishes were
 cut using a Papermania punch.
I also added two lengths of ribbon, red & green. from my stash.
The little heat buttons in the top corners were from my stash too!
The inside of the card was decorated to match the from without the 
image or embellishments.

I hope you like it & are inspired to take part it this weeks challenge
