This week the Flower Soft girls are dishing out a Looooooove Challenge!  Make a card in a Valentine or Love theme.

The SCS winner’s card will be featured on the Flower Soft blog on January 14th!

The prize this week – New Flower Soft colors Marigold, Meadow, and Peony Pink!

I already had this cute soon-to-be-released GKD stamp sitting in my workspace, and just couldn't resist the temptation to see what it would look like with some ultrafine Flower Soft adorning those little heart-shaped leaves.  I stamped the image with Memento ink, sponged in some clouds, then colored the image in with Copic markers.  Once the colors were laid in, I applied Flower Soft glue to the little leaves, using the tip of a paper piercer to dab it into the smallest spots and then sprinkling on some ultrafine Raspberry Fizz and some Sage Green grass...I suppose it lost a little of the detail because the shapes are so very tiny, but I still love the overall effect!

I used some Crate Paper Snow Day designer paper for a simple background for my scene.  The heart embellishments that frame the sentiment were punched from a strip that was trimmed from the bottom of this same piece of paper.  I love the bright color of that wispy sheer bow, made with the Bow Easy!
