Love Is In The Air - Week 3: Tiny Tots (Card 3 of 3)

A whole month to share all the love that is in the air!  

During January, I will be featuring posts celebrating hugs, kisses, and Valentine wishes.

This week's focus is on tiny tots.

Be Mine

This tiny tot is one of my favorites which is called Love Sign (Penny Black / Illustrated by Mo Manning).  Did you spot the girl signing "I Love You"?  Her dress is so adorable and the balloon is the perfect size for adding a small sentiment (Ooh La La - Penny Black).

The card base and second layer were created from white cardstock. To "pop" the orange of the girl's dress, I used a complementary color for the accent strip.  A small piece of teal cardstock was stamped twice with a border from Rose Edging (Penny Black). First in Teal Zeal Memento and then again with Wedding Dress Luxe Memento.  While it can be difficult to see the darker, first impression it gives the piece a great deal of depth.

Thank you for joining me this week.  I will see you on Monday to kick off Week 4!
