Colourful Love Card - Inkspirational Jan Photo Challenge

This week at the Inkspirational challenge blog we have a fun inspiration photo for you.

Lots of details to take from this photo!  What stood out for me was the heart, the colours and the arch shape.  I had a very happy time getting inky to make a card!  I knew I wanted to use my SU! You Are Loved set so I dug that out - plus the matching wheel - assembled my CS and inks and got cracking.  I stamped the heart and flower spray and fussy cut them out.  I stamped the label and 'love' oval and punched those out.  I die cut my two arched shapes and then assembled my pieces onto my square red card base, popping up the heart and love label.  To finish off the front I've added some white ribbon and a few rhinestone jewels.

Inside the card I kept things simple with a fussy cut flower spray on a white panel.

Not quite so simple on the front of the envelope!  I stamped the Love Blossoms wheel, stamped and fussy cut another flower spray and stamped and punched a label.   

I really hope you'll join in with this week's challenge, I'd love to pop by your blogs to see what you create!  The rest of the DT will be sure to have amazing samples to inspire you so please check them out - and look out for the EOTWE post on Saturday too!

Hi, friend! :D LOVE this beautiful card and that set is on my "need" list...has been ever since I saw it a year ago! ;) I just scrolled down and I've missed a few but I am loving the colors you're using--the bolder tones! The swirly gilded butterfly is fun, too! HUGS to you--also, I'm jealous that you're in a choir and joining another! You've inspired me to start a community choir because I miss singing (I was a music education major in college and abandoned it for special needs children--no regrets, though!).
