All You Need is Love

"All you need is love...bum ba da dum".   Remember that song by the Beatles? This is the time of the year for 'love', so this card is for the "Love is in the Air" challenge at Simply Create Too and the 'Love' and 'Ribbon' challenges at Paper Pretties. Every "love" card need fantastic colors so the colors are from the inspirational photo at CR84FN.



The image is from Mo Manning, colored with Copic markers, DP from MME paper pad, Eiffel Tower die from MFT and the ribbon, flowers and rhinestones are from Michaels  OMG alphabet soup in that last sentence (wink). I had to color some of the floral background paper to get it to match the colors on the image. This was accomplished with Prisma colored pencils. You get a lot more use out of your papers if you can 'tweek' them with colored pencils...YEAH.

This is the inspirational photo that was used for this card.


Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
