Crafting for all Seasons #20 Love is in the Air

Time for another challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and as Valentine's Day is fast approaching we would like to see your "Love is in the Air" themed projects.

We have three generous sponsors for this challenge:
Bugaboo Stamps who have a prize of 7 digi stamps, 
Lily of the Valley who have donated a £10 gift voucher and 
Digi Doodle who have a £10 gift card

I have used this lovely wedding image from Lily of the Valley which came just at the right time as I have a commission for a wedding card!

The image was coloured with promarkers and I used the antique white flexmarker for the dress and veil which is quite subtle but just gave enough colour to distinguish them from the white background.  This was cut with a spellbinders die and I also cut a frame of silver mirri and used foam pads to mount over the image, strands of pearls were added to the frame. The two hearts were made by twisted beading wire adding a couple of pearls and rolling up the ends to secure the pearls.

Tha card is centura pearl with a silver mirri mat and a mat of the centura pearl which has been dry embossed in an embossing folder although it doesn't show up very well in the photo. A white flower with pearls, white leaves and an organza ribbon bow in the one corner and a sentiment were added to complete.

I am entering this card into the following challenges: Romance is in the Air Always Anything Goes
