With Love from the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today brings the next challenge for the

But before I move on I need to tell you about this

This week the theme has been chosen by our very talented Jane, and it is

With Love

I really enjoyed creating this design team inspirational piece
This is a hand cut out heart template, which has been used to make a heart shaped easel card.  The base card for the easel is white.  On top of this is a row of the MS heart punches working their way around the heart on the top and return.  On top of this is a purple plain card and on top of this some more of my old stash papers and again the stack is that old that the top and bottom has fallen off it so sorry.    I added the large MS hearts and a small ribbon and bow on the return with some flowers and the MSE sentiment pair, just fabulous for this image which is a Secret Crafter Manga Image it comes in the clear polymer as well as a digi image.  I have used the digi image.  I have used a Tim Holtz purple lavendar distress ink to edge the image and to over stamp some swirls on the image plate.  The image is coloured with copics and the colour purple is just for our Jane.  The little pearls are from the Hobby House.  I have used a white gel pen to highlight the image and a clear sakuro glitter pen to edge the designer paper, the image and the sentiment.  I hope you like it.
