Loves Rubberstamps Challenge using Enchanted Love

Welcome Blogger Friends!  Hope you are all having a good start to your week!  Mine has already started out hectic at work. It's been one of those days where I would love to just hide out and craft! LOL I'm hoping things will calm down by Friday and then I can maybe enjoy my wish this weekend! :)

Well one thing during the week that I definitely look forward to is Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday challenges!!!  The challenge this week is called "Cute as a Button" and the challenge is to use a real button or handmade one on our project.

Our wonderful sponsor for the week is The Paper Shelter!

Here is my card...

The Paper Shelter has some of the cutest digi images I have ever seen!  This one is called "Enchanted Love".  So super adorable and I had so much fun coloring up this darling image with my copics!  I have been in a "Valentine" project mood lately and this week is no exception!  I mean the image is so "Valentine", right?!!! :)  I manually cut out this sweet image using a circle template.  I then decided to layer some doilies behind the image which I sprayed up with Tattered Angels Cherub Pink Glimmer mist.  The paper collection I used is by Authentique called Lovely.  I just can't get enough of these papers. They are gorgeous! Seriously, this would have probably gone in my "hoard vault" but I decided to share it in my project instead! LOL   I distressed all of the papers and then edged all of them with my Tim Holtz distress ink in Victorian Velvet. The flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I also sprayed these up with TA Iridescent Gold, my favorite.  There's also a cute small pink resin flower at the bottom. To be true to my "Button" challenge, I decided to add a cute pink heart button on top of the large pink gardenia.  I added some pink twine to the button to further embellish it.  I glued the flowers down using Best Glue Ever.    The pink bling, including the cute butterfly, are from Recollections.  I also added the ticket stub which I thought would be cute for this card.  This ticket stamp comes from a Whimsy stamp collection called The Fun Life Tickets. Such a great set to have and I will definitely be using more of these on future projects!

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store.
