TSG140 | Love is in the Air

It's time for another fabulous challenge from There She Goes!

This week our challenge is brought to us by the Senior Trendsetters! We are challenging you to make a card or project with love and hearts. Valentine’s is just around the corner, it’s time to get started on all those wonderful Valentines.
  • To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project for Valentine’s with love and hearts, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (January 30th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
  • By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)
  • You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG140 so we can check out your beautiful work!
I used Blossom by Blossom again this week and since the theme was love and hearts, I picked this lovely sentiment about hearts and love.  That's what I love about TSG stamps - each set is so versatile for all sorts of occasions!  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it with Copic markers.  I attempted to color some free-hand grass.  The patterned papers are Love Me by My Mind's Eye and the card base is kraft.  Of course, I had to sew all over it too!  The layout is Sweet Stop's SSS141, but I added a little button and sentiment tag in the corner.

I really hope you'll join in on the fun this week!  Thanks so much for stopping by -
Karen

Too cute! I love that you didn't put another colour paper to border your main image! I always feel I need to do it with mine! Yours is great!
