Two in One....

Another card combining two challenges in one card. I have used Dawny's Sketch from this weeks challenge over on PaperTake Weekly Challenge Blog, and also used the theme of "Love is in the Air" over on A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Blog.

For my card I have used three of the Magnolia Valentines 2009 Collection released earlier this year. I have coloured all the images with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Walnut Stain (Hair)
Tattered Rose/Walnut Stain (Clothing)
Worn Lipstick (Hearts)
Worn Lipstick/Vintage Photo (Large Heart)
Old Paper/Frayed Burlap (Background)
Weathered Wood (Shadows)
The papers are all Basic Grey "Bittersweet" and I have added some sheer ribbon, heart pin and love token charm from my stash. The sentiment is also a Magnolia from the same collection.

Thanks Dawny for the fab sketch, and to both sets of DT's for the challenge and your inspiration.

Hi Caz!
Wow - you've really mastered the distress ink medium - flawless :) This card is just so delightful (I don't expect anything less from you!) - I especialy love the ripping & tearing paper detail
Now I have a blog, I can make my pressence known rather than just stalk & leave (which I've been doing for many months lol) xxx
