CYP Challenge ~ Caught the Love Bug

I am having so much fun with Valentine's Day cards. Our theme this week at Craft Your Passion Challenges is My Valentine. I chose this fun and funky image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps called JJ  calendar months February. I love the spunk of this woman and her funky sense of style. Bugaboo has so many fun and quirky characters.

I coloured JJ with Prismacolor pencils and cut out the image with the Deckled Mega Rectangles die from Spellbinders. (The look on her face makes me smile as I'm writing this. JJ is very distracting!). The image rectangle was matted on a larger black cardstock rectangle to frame it and give it weight.

The background uses three papers from the Recollections Bright and Basic stack. Each paper was matted with black cardstock. The rectangle matting the horizontal band was given a deckled scalloped edge which was cut with an EK Success punch. The image rectangle was mounted on foam tape and adhered over the background. Hearts were traced using a stencil onto more of the red dotty paper and cut out by hand. A Fiskars sentiment was stamped in the large heart which was then faux stitched and blinged. The smaller hearts have Icicle Stickles dots for a highlight.

That's it for me for our My Valentine challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges. I hope you get a chance to pop by the CYP blog to see the fun creations by the rest of the DT. Maybe you'll get inspired to play along with us. As for JJ, she appreciates your stopping by but she has a hot date so she's moving on :)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Come and Get It Challenges ~ Show us your heart/Love is in the Air
Gingerloft Challenge 58 ~ The Colour Red
Great Impressions February Challenge ~ Have a Heart
Catch the Bug ~ Affairs of the Heart

Life is good; so is art.
