SC366.....Sending Love

Happy Friday Peeps!!

Hope your 1st week of January was a good one and you are ready for the weekend! We have started the New Year off with a bang here and I am pumped for the year to come, looking forward to good things!

Today I am sharing a card with you that I made using the sketch this week on Splitcoaststampers, you know I love a sketch challenge. This one was a fun one to work with.
This cute image comes from the Stampin Up hostess set called "Ain't Love Grand" . I stamped the image onto some whisper white card stock and then stamped it again onto my red and pink DSP. I then cut out the strips of the balloon alternating the red and pink and pieced the top of the balloon. 
I colored the rest of the image with my aqua painter, I used More Mustard ink on the basket part of the hot air balloon and real red and pretty in pink on the hearts.

The base of the card is pretty in pink card stock and then I followed that up with some white and then my pink DSP. The next layer is a strip of pretty in pink card stock that I embossed with the square lattice EF. Then comes the real red and real red DSP panel that is added to the base on a slight angle. I added the main panel to the card with some dimesionals. Next up is the whisper white satin ribbon and bow. The hearts across the bottom of the main panel is punched using the Stampin Up Heart to Heart punch. I embossed these hearts as well with the square lattice EF. Finished it up with a few silver pearls (non SU).
Well, that is all from me today, be sure and come by tomorrow for a new OCC challenge, I am the hostess for the next two weeks! 
Talk to you soon!
