Love is in the Air

This is my second post please scroll down for Crafty Sentiments sneak peek!

As promised I am back again - like Arnie!  Today is the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and it is  Team A's turn this week.  The theme for this challenge is Love is in the Air.  This gave me a good excuse to use this gorgeous image which I had been eyeing up for a while:


As soon as I saw her I loved her and thought she would be perfect for this challenge (Private Dancer springs to mind).  The image is Arabian Spell and she is available here at The Paper Shelter.  She has been coloured with Copics and Twinkling H2Os, here is a closer look of the gleam you get with the Twinkling H2Os:


I added some Glossy Accents to the jewels but you can't really see that! I am not sure about the heart die I think it may be Nellie Snellen.  The image has been matted on Floral Ovals.  I think the Black and white paper may be Pink Petticoat.  I haven't written the details down for this card, I usually write them all down in a notebook as I make them in advance and I wouldn't be able to remember them but for some reason I haven't written these down and now I can't remember!! The black panel has been embossed and gems added and the little heart is a Marianne die which has been embossed with red EP using the sentiment which came with the die.

As usual there is a fabulous prize for the lucky winner:


Please go over to the challenge and see what the rest of the fabulous DT have done!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

My Heart Pieces - Embossing
Creative Card Crew - Bling

Thanks for looking today I appreciate it! I will see you all tomorrow, take care xx
