Love is in the Air - Mid Month Inspiration for Imagination Crafts, February Challenge.

Morning my friends, and can I say a quick Happy Birthday to my Dad, who would have been 79 today, still wish he was at the end of the phone.....
Using:- Imagination Crafts products:-

Now, onto business...LOL....although Valentine's day has passed, we still want to feel that "Love is in the Air" don't we? so lets keep it going...I am sharing my Mid-month Inspiration card, for Imagination Crafts, February challenge - Love is in the Air...hope you like it...here is how it was made:-

I started out with a 6 x 6 Scalloped White Card Blank, then I cut the Silver Mirri Mat at 5 inches, and the Black Satin card, to 4.5".  I placed the Flourishes Stencil over the Black Satin card, and used the Bright Red, Sparkle Medium, and spread it over with my Spatula.  Whilst this was drying, I took another piece of Black Satin card, and die cut it with my X-cut scalloped heart die...then I stamped the Bird of Paradise, from the Gilding Set, using a Versamark Ink Pad and here is where it was tricky, LOL..tried various Embossing Powders from my Stash and eventually settled on a Tinsel one, that I had, (not to self, buy more embossing powders, LOL).  Then it was a case of putting all the elements together, and adding a charm, gem and Bow, using ribbon from my stash..

I hope you like this card, and I would love to see you over in the Imagination Crafts Challenge, there is a Fabulous £40 Voucher to spend in store...for the winner.
