Love is...

Hello friends!
It's the weekend, and time for another Sketch Saturday challenge!
We're sponsored by our friends at Simon Says Stamp this week :)

You could enjoy a whopping $25 shopping spree at their amazing online store if you are our lucky winner this week.

This is my card, I flipped the sketch...

The image of course is 'Wedding Couple' by Lili of the Valley, coloured with my promarkers.
The gorgeous papers were a prize I won just before Christmas on the Sketchy Colors challenge blog. My prize was some yummy 12x12 papers from the Norwegian company 3ndypapir, this collection of double-sided papers is called White Christmas 2011, the top piece is called 'Juleglede', the bottom piece is called 'Julekveld'. The papers in the collection do have a christmas theme, but these 2 weren't screaming out christmassy to me, and I thought they'd look fab on a wedding card.
The sentiment is from Create with TLC, although I split the sentence beneath the 'Love is' bit from one long sentence so that I could fit it onto a circle.
The flowers and leaves were made using punches and adding a crystal to the centre of each flower.

For more beautiful inspiration please go visit the Saturday Girls and our talented GD for February Liesbeth, there's a lovely mix of styles and themes using this weeks sketch,  yes it is a little more challenging than most sketches I make, but I knew these girls would make some stunning examples for you, go see for yourself, they are sure to inspire you to join in our challenge this week.
