Cute Chicklets

I bought myself the Cute Chicklet Love Collection from Digistamp Boutique last month. So today, I thought it's about time I coloured one of the images in, and with my parents anniversary coming up next month, I decided on this adorable image...

Lovely isn't it? and a dream to colour too.
After colouring and distressing the edges, I played about with different layout ideas, moving papers around etc. Then I thought it would be nice to make an easel card, which I haven't done for a while.

I've used a few dies and punches on this card, Marianne's scalloped heart set, Marianne's stencil leaves, Lea'bilities ornate frame, 2 different sized heart punches, and SU's eyelet border punch.
The papers used are from MME's life of the party pad (stripes) and First Editions Nordic Christmas (hearts).
The sentiment is by All Night Media.
As you can see, I embossed the large dusky pink heart with a paisley folder, and added a bit of bling with some pale blue crystal gems.

I'm entering this card at:
DigiStamp Boutique - February challenge
Crafting By Designs - Anything for love
Creative Inspirations - Love
Cute Card Thursday - Clever Cutting.
Crafty Catz - Love is in the air
Papertake Weekly - With a heart
Passion for Promarkers - have a heart

I haven't decided yet whether to put 'Mom & Dad' or 'Nan & Grandad' on the bottom of the base beneath the greeting, that will depend on which card my son wants to give them after i've made the other card.

EDIT 18/02 :  woohoooo!
