This weeks challenge over on The Sugar Bowl is Love and Romance and there is a fabulous prize of Leanne Ellis stamps (keeping my fingers and toes crossed for these).

I couldn't decide if I should go with the reds and whites with a hint of black or go for pinks, but these colours I have used are my absolute favourite at the moment - chocolate brown, raspberry and cream. I have coloured the image with watercolour pencils ( I will get those pro markers one day), oh and I added a little sidewalk and grass too. I have layered this onto the raspberry cardstock and edged with scalloped scissors. The heart I have made from silver craft aluminium - I cut out a basic heart shape and using an embossing tool to make the lattice pattern. Paperclip and ribbon from my stash. I am not sure where the sentiment comes from, but found this at the bottom of piles of other bits and pieces in my stash. The stitching was done on a little sewing machine I found at a sale a real bargin - £3!!
