Love is in the Air ATC

The theme for the January ATC swap was "Love is in the Air". I decided that for this swap I could not buy anything, I must use things I had on hand...I have SOOO MUCH! After gathering everything I could find that was appropriate to theme I went to work...

This is a rather simple card, but I really like it. I used a purple glitter paper for the base. I then took a piece of handmade paper and tore it into a cloud shape. To make it more interesting I used metallic rubs all over in pink, purple, blue, & silver with blue inked edges. I then pop dotted the winged heart embellishment on.

For this card I wanted to use the vintage gold foil cupid seals I had purchased...and been saving to make something ;) I used a black print card stock for the back. I used gold metallic rub around the edges to soften the look. I then layered on a fabric heart, cupid seal and silk flower.

Now on to a challenge card....

My take on the sketch...I used a digi that I found for free on the Operation Write Home site (http://operationwritehome.org/digis.html).  The little puppy was just so cute and had the saddest eyes that I knew it had to be for a belated birthday card, so...I printed the sentiment on the computer.  After coloring the image I added Crystal Effects to his eyes & nose, "fussy cut'' the image, and adhered it with pop dots to the white circle.  The papers are scraps of Basic Grey from my scrap box.  To add a little depth I embosses the striped & white papers.  I inked all edges.  I just love him!
