Sending my love...





I am really happy with how this card turned out.  I spent a lot of time on it.  I am planning to send it to my grandmother.

Here's the details:
I used the sketch from Magnolia Ink Magazine, Magnolia Tilda blowing Hearts stamp, Staz On Ink in black and brown, Patterned Paper by K & Co, Cardstock by The Paper Company, Nestabilities Label 4, Martha Stewart Lace Hearts border punch, Prismacolor pencils and gamsol (Process red, deco pink, light peach, dark brown, & terra cotta), Gelly Roll white pen, Creative Memories scallop corner punch, Prima flowers, Bic Marker in woodsy brown for inking, hand cut hearts, hand written sentiment, Michael's adhesive pearls, and Robin Brand metallic rub on in cameo pink.  The heart stamp on the inside is by Alota Rubberstamps.

This card also applies to the Magnolia Down Under distressing challenge and the La-La Land Pink challenge.
