Love Potion # 9

I was very excited to see that Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is currently hosting a challenge for Krafty Guests. I adore Kraftin' Kimmie's stamps and my collection of their fabulous stamps continues to grow. Check out the challenge blog for details on the Krafty Guest Contest.

For my challenge submission I used one of the Moonlight Whispers stamps called Josephine. I decided this image would make a fun Valentine's card.

I was able to use a number of scraps to create a patchwork look on my card. I tried to stick to colours I used in her dress, however I did miss adding a bit of green (oops).

One of the requests for the challenge was to add sparkle. Just like the Krafty Girls, I love bling. I added a few small gems to the scalloped paper and there is glitter added to my image.

My close up came out a bit dark (I'm still working on my photography). I added Glitter Ritz Micro fine glitter to her dress and to parts the "love" fumes coming out of the bottle. It's hard to see in the picture.

Inside the card I added a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn "Future is Bright" stamp set. I repeated the love potion image and added some paper that I used on the front of the card.

The inspiration for the layout came from this fun sketch from Seize the Sketch
