...A little Love - ROP *17

Okay, so another Monday is here.. and that means that it's time for another Roses on Paper challenge! With all the buzz going on for the new Belles 'nd Whistles release; we still found time to make another challenge for you to have fun with on the Roses on Paper challenge Blog! I'm still excited with my yesterday win.. but hey.. these Elisabeth Bell images are blowing me out! Did you see the new sneak peak puzzle going on the Blog today? You should see that.. and if you're there to leave a comment.. who knows.. this stamp could be yours as well ;) How?? Click here, and go and check the deets!! :) I'm just counting the days when I can ink these babes up ;)

So let's see what Challenge dear Summer and my fellow DT members gave us today..

This challenge's theme is chosen by the marvelous Lim!
She would like you all to show us some love...
use hearts in your creation! Simple!

**Please don't forget, this project must be created using a Magnolia, Alota, Sarah Kay, Rachelle Anne Miller OR a Greeting Farm stamp in order to qualify!**

The winner of this Challenge will be chosen randomly on Monday, August have until August 9th to enter!

The prize for this challenge will be
a newly released stamp from

Belles 'n Whistles!

Gosh!! Isn't this a super prize?! :)

For this card I used my brand new Magnolia Horse that I had won. Finally it's his turn :) I made a Baby girl card for some friends of mine who'll have a baby girl in a few months' time! I'm glad that it's ready, cause many times I leave these till the last minute.. and usually.. more often than not.. I'm late with cards for my friends! :))

I used DP from Papermania Scrumptious Pack. It's full of delish pink papers, most of them with hearts. One of the sheets though is from Basic Grey's Bittersweet Collection. I used Friday Sketcher's Sketch for my creation. I can also enter it for A Spoon Full of Sugar, as I used a swirl on the inside. I hope that counts :)

I inked up my horse with pinks and browns reinkers this time, and after trimming his head and feet, I cut the rest with an oval nestie (thank you my friend.. I always think of you everytime I use them!) I popped him up on other two nestie ovals and then covered the horse with Crystal Lacquer.

This photo helps you see the dimension and shine on the horse. I then cut the bits of paper I needed for the sketch, and matted with brown card stock. I also used the heart border punch from Fiskars. I tied the bow and after I made the knot, I slipped in the pink safety pin, and a stampin' up circle of friendship sentiment. I also popped salmon half pearls around the horse and some flowers and a pearl heart in the middle for some more cuteness :)

I disressed all paper edges with Brushed Courduroy ink.

(sorry for the blurred photo, couldn't sharpen it more)

On the inside I continued with the same theme and shapes. I printed a sentiment, and made a lrge swirl and some flowers to embellish. On the oppsite corner, I added pink and white buttons.

On the bottom panel I added a pink foam horse that was lying in my stash. I printed sweetheart on it with Blck Staz on ink, and stamped those hearts in the sides of the jotting panel. I hope you like what i created and shared with you. I'd be honored to read what you like, or dislike about it. I hope you have a lovely week. I have so many going on this week here.. I do hope that Mr.Postie hurries up with things I've been waiting for too long!!!!

Peace .. and Love to each of you and Yours.

Thanks for looking
