LOVE Conquers All

I just had to use one of my free digi images I won at the recent Lets Scrap Blog Hop from Bugaboo Stamps.  This silhouette stamp is one of my favourites and so versatile to colour and it has the added benefit of having a sentiment incorporated.  I used some of my dry chalks to add the yellow colour to the background and then used my H2O pencils to colour the image.

Once again I used a flower fold technique using a 3" Scalloped Square Punch.  You can find the tutorial here.   The patterned cardstock are Basic Grey and the striped textured paper is from my stash. Can you believe it that I once again threaded the buttons with raffia. And its no surprise that it is an easel card (still my favourite card fold design).
