Love Is In The Air!

Whaaaaaat? It's Monday already???
Where did that weekend go? lol
So, that means it's time for the new challenge at Eureka Stamps
this weeks theme is
I made two cards because I was having so much fun!

I used the lovely image, Digi 14707 (514) Cascading Hearts
This is another of my faves!
If I'm honest, I smudged it the first time I coloured it & printed another,
however, I decided to use both anyway!
 The images were both coloured with my Chameleon pens & I added 
a touch of white using a Sakura Glaze pen.
The base of this card is 6"x6" red cs.
I've used up a lot of stash items on this one!
I added a mat of white paper & the DP which came from a gift wrapping kit I got in IKEA.
I've had it in my stash for a while but haven't used much of it.
The pin has been in my stash forever too, I added some beads,yes I've had them forever
& the red dotted ribbon is from my stash too!
The image is matted on to red CS & popped up on some foam tape.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Oddball Art Stamps - All you need is Love
Scrap it with a song - Inspired by a song (All You Need Is Love)

For this card, I raided my scraps!
The Base is Centura Pearl A6. I added a strip of DP left over from another project,
The lace is a scrap & the butterfly has been kicking about for ages.
I added a few tiny flat backed pearls & some dotty ribbon.
I also added a heart button which was threaded with twine!
