Love You… the moon and back!

There is a progressive challenge on the Artbymiran Facebook page featuring this adorable image “Petal Blossoms”.  This is a reserved image just for the challenge and you can find out more about the challenge by visiting her Facebook page.


I decided to color her in blues and  yellows.  I hadn’t started out thinking this was going to be a Valentine’s card, but once I started adding the hearts and the sentiment I just ran with it!  It’s also nice to get out of the “red” only for Valentine’s Day.


American Crafts – Welcome Spring paper pad.  French Pastry Doily die by Cheery Lynn Designs.  The hearts and Love You dies are from Simon Says Stamp.  The sentiment is from the Love Languages clear stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.  The yellow ribbon is by Crafts.  The image is colored with Copics.
