Love Letters Straight from Your Heart

Good morning to you all and here we are mid week all ready! Goodness me, soon be Christmas!!
Its raining here in Blackpool and the sky is wall to wall grey cloud so it doesn't look promising for the rest of the day.

So here is a card that I made following a photo colour inspiration at Milk Coffee Stamps:

The digi is from Milk Coffee called Charlotte and her Love Letter and has been coloured with Copics and Prismas.  The papers are by Prima called Melody.  I have embossed and sanded the panel behind the image.  I have used Spellbinders for the image and mat and also the computer generated sentiment.   The heart banner is Whiff of Joy and I have coloured the pearls (from my stash) with Copics to match.  I have followed a sketch from Sketch Saturday for the layout.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Milk Coffee - Photo Colour Inspirations
Creative Card Crew - Song Inspired (Love Letters Straight from Your Heart
Jackson's Digital Expressions - Inks and Such
Oldie but a Goodie - Banners/Bunting ( My papers and pearls are my Oldies)
Papers and Such - Feathered Friends
Papertake Weekly - 3,2,1 (3 Pearls, 2 Papers, 1 Banner)
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Stempelsonne - Birds

Here is a trip down memory lane:


 Well I think it calls for a crafty day inside today with all this rain - what's a girl to do??  Hope you all enjoy your day whatever you are up to.  I will be back tomorrow, thanks so much for calling by, take care xx
