Love is in the air

Love is in the Air is the theme on our Come And Get It Challenge this week, with All Dressed Up as our kind sponsor.  Come and join us?

I guess we all get locked into thinking 'love' cards need to be red or pink, well - how about black and gold?  I think it looks sophisticated and classy.

I coloured this image with a metallic marker pen, then coated the hearts with Glossy Accents (they got two coats and are quite raised). The gorgeous leafy frame is diecut from quilted heart paper and matted onto metallic gold card with a slim border, then onto a stripey base card with a scalloped edge. The Love sentiment is cut in gold mirror card, and a tiny gold stick-on metal heart too.
