Southern Girls Challenge

We are back with another Anything Goes Challenge at Southern Girls Challenge!  Our sponsors this month are Three Button Studio and the Colour of Love.  I created my card with part of the Love Sprite digital image by Colour of Love.  My favorite part of using digi stamps is being able to resize the images.  I enlarged my image to various sizes and cut out the plaid heart for my design.  I colored the hearts with Prismacolor pencils and blended out with Gamsol.  I was skeptical of using Gamsol with my inkjet printer, but it worked like a charm. My card is based on the sketch challenge at Stick it Down

I created my side border by layering two ribbons.  My hearts were applied with 3-D foam tape for added dimension. My ovals and banners were cut with MFT dies.
