Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring Kenny K's "Sweet Melissa"

Hello and welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!!!

Is everyone enjoying their week so far?  The weekend flew by so fast!  We took our Christmas tree down finally and I had mixed feeling about that! Lol Although I would love the holiday fun to last a little longer, I'm also looking forward to the new year and getting back to routine schedules.  They are crazy schedules but at least something we are used to these days! :)

So onto our fun challenge...This week's challenge is to use something metal on your project! 

Our fantastic sponsor for this week's challenge is Kenny K!!!

Here is my card...

This card features the adorable "Sweet Melissa" by Kenny K.   Isn't this image so pretty and she really does have a sweet expression, right?!! I colored up Melissa with my copic markers.  Her hair was a lot of fun with all the big curls!  The pretty paper collection is one of my new favorites called Love Note by Fancy Pants.  These papers are so pretty and perfect for Valentine's day!  I created the little ledge this sweet gal is sitting on by using  the Die-Namics Jumbo Scallop Die by MFT.  Behind her is also MFT's Die-Namics Open Scallop Doily Die.   The ticket was punched out using the Ticket Die by Whimsy Stamps Shapeology Dies and the sentiment stamped on the ticket is from The Fun Life Tickets by Whimsy Stamps Sentiments Collection.  Wow, sounds like a lot of supplies or maybe just the long descriptions! Lol But I have to say that these supplies really made it so easy to put my card together and I'm happy with the way it turned out! Oh, and my metal piece is the heart you see there by the ticket! :)

Here are some additional supplies I used on my card:

Victorian Velvet-Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Black Tuxedo-Memento 
Roses-Wild Orchid Crafts
Silver pearls-Melissa Francis
Metal Heart-We are Memory Keepers

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!

Hope you all like my  card!  Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by to visit! :)
