Enchanted Love

This weeks Spotlight Image at Michelle Perkett Studio is the beautiful 'Enchanted Love' and that means you can get a fab 20% discount on this gorgeous image in Michelle's Etsy Store. I decided to make an acetate card for a change and to use greens and golds. I thought these colours would be great for a valentine card for a man.

I've coloured the acetate with Alcohol Inks (Pesto, Lettuce, butterscotch and ginger' and stamped an Elusive Images leaf randomly with copper Stazon. I've also edged the acetate with copper stazon. The image is coloured with promarkers, cut out and then glittered with glitters from the Autumn Medallions set of Pee Wee glitters. The copper ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and inside the card i've used a Marianne doiley diecut so there is somewhere to write.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Love is in the air
Cards for Men: valentine/love
C.R.A.F.T: Valentine
Crafty Catz: Valentine/Love
Ooh La La: For someone special
Polka doodles: Thats Amore (my card is inspired by Frank Sinatra's "Fly me to the moon")
Papercrafting Journey: Love is in the air
Passion for Promarkers: Let there be love

thanks for popping by, sorry I'm a bit quiet lately i've been so busy at work and trying to get sorted out after the gremlins in the kitchen too so its pretty hectic at the minute. We are having the new flooring down soon and I decided it would be a good idea (???) to decorate the kitchen before the new floor was laid. Why does decorating always seem such a good idea until you start lol?? And why does decorating one room always mean that the whole house is a mess? I'm sure it will be worth it when its done though .
