C is for Cupid - new ABC Challenge

It's the first of the month and time for the new ABC Challenge - C is for Cupid sponsored by Marianne Design and Stamp and Create.  The theme surprisingly is Love/Romance/Valentines/Wedding/Engagement :)  This leaves lots of options open for your creativity!

For my DT card I decided to use a stamp from Wild Rose Studio - Fireworks in Paris.  I've coloured it with ProMarkers and mounted it onto some black card stock to create a border.  At the top left of the image I've added some pearl self adhesive gems.

The papers are also from Wild Rose Studio - Wedding Bells.  I've selected two of the design papers from this pack using roses.  At the top righthand corner I've folded the top paper back onto itself to reveal the design paper underneath.  The image is mounted over the top of this to pin it in place.

Under the top left of the image are two tags created using a Marianne Design die set.  The tags have been edged in Antique Linen distress ink from Tim Holtz and I've threaded some vintage seam binding through their tops.

Underneath the image is some gold organza ribbon which I bought from Hobby Craft and completed with a hand tied bow.

The image itself has been mounted using some sticky pads give some dimension to the card.  This enabled me to place some of the flowers and leaves slightly underneath the image and layer them onto the top.  The leaves, white roses, cherry blossom and sweetheart blossoms are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The hortensias and flower spray are from Live and Love Crafts.  And finally the pins are from The Ribbon Girl.  I've included a close up below so you can see in more detail.

The right hand side of the image is frames by two resin corners from Live and Love Crafts - a close up of the bottom one is below.

Last thing that's been added is some small organza rose trim from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Phew I think that's it!

Have fun creating :)
