Love is in the Air

Hi everyone and Happy Friday :)  I'm so excited the weekend is almost here, this has been one crazy work week.  Sorry for my lack of posting and commenting this week, I will get caught up this weekend :)  I'm so excited to share my card with you today.  The new challenge is up over at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this time is ribbons or lace.  We are also debuting two new images over at All Dressed Up Stamps so make sure to check them out :)

For my card today, I just had to use this new image called Love Is in the Air.  I absolutely adore this image and it was oh so fun to color.  I printed the image onto  Copic Xpress Blending Card.  I of course colored the image with Copic Markers.  Here are the colors I used:

Blues: BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85
Balloon Baskets: E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20

I added lots of glitter to the balloons..  Here's a tip for adding glitter: I put Glossy Accents down wherever I want my glitter, then sprinkle my glitter over top (I just use Martha Stewart fine coarse glitter that I got at Michael's).  The Glossy Accents holds the glitter perfectly and when it dries, it is super sparkly.  Love it :)  I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  My DP is from Bo Bunny (last year's Valentine's stack).  The corner embellishments were made using a Memory Box die.  I also added lace with the pink pom poms (this was from the dollar spot at Michael's).  Finally, I added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Please stop by the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog to check out all the DT creations and to join in the challenge.  Big hugs!
