Love You Dearly

Hello! Since it's Valentine's week, here's another "love" themed card.  My card above was inspired by the photo on the current Paper Smooches Sparks' challenge.

I was inspired by the canvas texture on the photo, the sweet pink felt heart and the stitching.  Pretty obvious, isn't it?  I coloured the image from Chubby Chum Pals with Copics (Bear - R22, R21, R00; Cap - R24, R22, R20) and adhered two small  "shifty" eyes on the image.  The sentiment was from Pretty Phrases set, and I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa and Rhubarb Stalk inks.

The kraft background was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder (I can't recall the name) and inked with some white pigment ink.  The felt heart was cut using Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Hearts die and the pink cardstock with Spellbinders Classic Hearts die.  It's been a long time since I did any hand stitching and I must say it was rather therapeutic ;)

Thanks for coming by.  Wishing you a lovely day!
