Loves Rubberstamps Challenge using Kenny K's Milkshake

Hello and welcome to Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!!! I hope everyone is having a great week!  This week's challenge is called "Have a Heart" and we were asked to use a heart somewhere on our project.  This was a perfect challenge to get in another Valentine's Day card.  This one is going to my hubby!:)

Our wonderful sponsor for the week is the fabulous Kenny K!

Here is my card...

This Kenny K image is called "Milkshake".  So super adorable and I had so much fun coloring up this fun image with my copics!  The paper collection I used is by Bo Bunny called Love Letters.  This paper has a lot of beautiful designs which can be used for other non-Valentine's events as well.  I  edged all of the papers with my Tim Holtz distress ink in Frayed Burlap. The cute red roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I sprayed these up with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold, my favorite top coat.  I glued the roses down using Best Glue Ever.   I had no problem adding hearts for this challenge! In fact, I loved adding several including the red heart trim from The Piece by Piece, the pink heart rhinestones by Recollections and the small silver heart from my stash which says Love.  I also added the ticket stub with the phrase "Hey Stranger" which I stamped with my favorite Memento ink in Black Tuxedo.   I thought this was cute on the card as well.  This ticket stamp comes from a Whimsy stamp collection called The Fun Life Tickets. I am on a roll with these adorable tickets. I think I have used them on almost all of my projects this last month! I absolutely love them!!!

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. I would love to see some Valentine's projects from you all! :)

Hope you all like my card for the week!  Have a fantastic rest of the week and thanks so much for stopping by!
