Charisma Cardz - ♥ Love is in the Air ♥

Good Morning fellow bloggers! :) And yes, I am back today in a much better mood!  See my post below if you have been experiencing the same blogger issues as me, as I found another temporary fix!  :) You cant keep a determined girl down! ;) lol!

So, this card is for our new challenge starting today over at Charisma Cardz where our theme is  ♥ Love is in the Air ♥.  We have 2 great sponsors this week, the ever generous and wonderful Joanna Sheen, and the brilliant DigiStamp Boutique.

I used another gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamp which had been on my wishlist for ages, and I finally snapped it up when it was on offer.  I went all out for a bit of colour on this, and it is quite bright for me.  I hand-stitched and distressed K&Co papers, used Spellbinder, Joy and Marianne dies, and an MS punch.  The flowers are WOC, and the ribbon is Joanna Sheen.

I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

Totally PaperCrafts - Ribbons and Bows
Allsorts Challenge - Anything Goes
Emerald Faeries - Tag it
Crafters Companion - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking at my blog, and I hope everyone has a smashing day :)

Brilliant how the trailing vines pick up on the image with the topiary element & I love your shading on his cap. Taht little flower with the tag is lovely too & I like how you have used white as a contrast/highlght. Doesn't that heart border really emphasize the topiary heart brilliantly?
