ACN: Celebrating Love

by - February 07, 2013

Hey People!

This is my first post for Feb.. and also the DT post for A Creative Need, wherein our Feb Challenge - Be inspired by a LOVE SONG.

My project today is inspired by the song - Celebrate Our Love by A1. I have colored the image - CLUSTER OF ROSES (colored with shades of pink and red ) and EIFFEL TOWER AVEC AMOUR from A Creative Need Etsy shop.

And here's my card:

The background of the card is a stamp from Gecko Gals that i have colored with pink and have slightly distressed the edges. The heart is carved out of the card and filled it with pink and blue quilling strips and have added pearls to give an added look to it :))

Here's the card in another angle:

Have used doily first time onto my card and did you notice the punched borders, this has been my first usage of punches as well :)


The pleated ribbon graduates from pink to purplish. I have adorned it with flowers left out of the bordered punches :)

Have also added the sentiment - LOVE and Celebrate!! to go with the current love theme that rules February :)

And yes, if you don't have any of your own ACN images yet then you can Pick up this month's FREEBIE and use it for the challenge!
You will also find an adorable GET WELL LITTLE BEAR,  SEALED WITH LOVE wax seal and envelope, and a special Valentine pie BAKED WITH LOVE  at Can you Digi it?!!

The card is very much inspired by the below inspiration pic for the new challenge - Be Our Valentine PDCC168 at the Play Date Cafe

Stay Happy!
Cheers
