Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #2 - I (heart) you

Tickled Pink Stamps have their second challenge going - I (heart) You!!  I just love the Cherrie stamps and have some more coming soon.  But in the meantime, I've improvised with the Christmas Cherrie.
Here's my card:

 As I mentioned, I've used the Christmas Cherrie - instead of the Christmas ornament, I've punched out some paper hearts, distressing them and then adding a rose - then I've placed it over the ornament image!
I've used Webster's Paper - Life's Portrait - they have a great vintage feel to them.
The image has been coloured with Copics, then I've used my oval cutters to create a series of ovals, distressing then layering each one.  Lately, I have a 'thing' for off-setting my image so it comes off the card a little - now I've done it again!!
I've stitched some lace trim (which you can hardly see now), added some ribbon and button and made a tag for the sentiment.
Here's a closer look:

Thanks for the fun challenge Pink Ladies!!

Not much scrapbooking happening as yet - I've just been enjoying some fun card challenges.  But I have a project planned which I can hopefully share very soon - an OTP item - something I haven't done in a while!

Happy crafting.

Ooh, I loved this from the moment I saw it, just haven't had a chance to comment yet. I love those papers, they are gorgeous and just perfect for this card. So clever to cover the ornament with the heart, it looks perfect. Another winner Chantelle. Xox
