DYSU Challenge #58

Good morning all - time for another challenge over at Do You Stack Up? and our theme this week is LOVE. 

Our generous sponsors this week are:

Through The Craftroom Door - 1 year PDF subscription

Birdie Brown - Winner's Choice of 3 Digital Stamps

My card this week showcases this gorgeous A Girl With A Rose image by Torico at Birdie Brown - isn't she just the cutest. I have made a circular aperture card as I wanted something different to my normal square ones and as I got a Grand Calibre from Santa this Christmas and the large set of scalloped nesties, I was able to do this using both the large and regular ones.

This is the inside of the card........

and this is the side view.

Medium - Promarkers and Worn Lipstick DI around the edges.
Paper - Nitwits "With This Ring Too"
Roses, leaves and ribbon - stash
Hearts - cut on my Cricut
Sentiment - a very old Woodware stamp set by Francoise Read 
Pink cardstock - white card coloured with a Promarker to match the image

I am looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations this week - remember, Valentine's Day is only five days away so you best get busy - LOL!!  For more inspiration, be sure to pop over to the DYSU Challenge blog and take a look at the rest of the team's gorgeous work.

I shall be back shortly with my DT card for Digi Doodle Shop Challenges, so hope you will pop in later to take a look.
