Love, hearts and a first kiss!

Hi  again

 I knew straight away today I had to use my  absolute favourite Stampavie stamp - first kiss, I just love this stamp.

 I went looking for some papers in my stash with a heart theme and found these from Dovecraft called Glamour Prints.  I've had them for ages and haven't used them all that much because some of them are very bright - like these ones!  But I decided to rise to the challenge.  I used purple card to tone in from bazzill and toned it down a bit using a pale pink chalk.  The image was coloured with promarkers and prismacolor pencils and the heart and frame were cut with spellbinders die.  The border is a new Martha Stewart punch and the "Love" and swirl were cut with my cricut expression machine from Tie the knot and Cindy Loo cartridges.  The flowers are from Prima and the crystal embelishments bought from ebay.  The best bit of all - the lovely little embellie in the middle of the large flower - recycled from a christmas card I received - thank you M&S!  I was really pleased with this when it was finished having been very unsure about the colours at the start - it just goes to show that you have to just go with it some times.
