   Well another challenge begins at Crafty Cardmakers today and the theme this time is Love, love, love.
   I used a stamp from the Platinum Popcorn the Bear set called perfect couple and coloured it using Promarkers. After cutting it out I dusted the edges using distress ink and then matted it onto core'dinations cardstock. The paper I used for the background I printed from a CD ROM a few years ago and it has been lying in my stash ever since, I think it was from the CD ROM which complimented the stamp set. I matted and layered this onto core'dinations cardstock and white card.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Ooh La La Creations - love and romance
   Creative Inspirations - hugs and kisses
