The photo I used for this card is actually of me and my hubby several years ago at a wedding. One of my daughters was sitting across from us and took the picture...after I stealthily indicated what I planned to do! My poor husband does not particularly like "public displays of affection"! But he really is a good sport. Even after all these years (36 now) he still chuckles and gets that "what did I get myself into?" look on his face.
My true Valentine!
One of the challenges I'm putting this card in has a photo for inspiration of a little girl kissing a little boy on the cheek....SO similar to my old photo! I just HAD to do this one!
Not real happy with how the colors are showing in the photo above...the zigzag printed cs is black and off-white...not brown! Not sure why it looks brown?? And can you tell that the little "love" birds are silver embossed just like the hearts and sentiment? They are.
Here is my list of ingredients:
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo "Love & Friendship", Stampin Up "I Love You"
Dies: Spellbinders "Standard Circles Lg", "Exquisite Circles",
little birds ??? (got them on Ebay)
Cardstock: K&Company "Julianne", American Crafts "Soho Garden"
Embossing: TH Distress "Embossing Ink", PSE "Silver Glitter"
Embellishments: Ribbon, sequins, rhinestone flowers, rhinestones...all from my gigantic stash!
