Love is in the Air

Hello, time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday which this fortnight is  Love is in The Air - which if you don't celebrate Valentine's Day, could also be Wedding or Anniversary or just showing some Love.

I started with a heart embossed background and shaded with Worn Lipstick, Barn door and Aged Mahogany, I've added a mini Globe, die cut in a textured silver card and randomly applied some silver EP for a bit extra texture. The sentiment is computer, the rose and leaves were cut with the Tattered Floral strip die (it looks as though a leaf is loose, but that part of the petal - which was coloured with DIs, is similar to the background and not showing too well)

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog and you'll also find all the challenge details.

I am entering this at:

This is gorgeous Avril, really must get those dies out and use them more they really work wonders on a card. Have the globe and only used it once what a waste - note to self make more use of them.

I've got the bigger globe die myself, but I get new ideas and inspiration on how to use it from you. I also treated myself to a package of paper dolls last weekend, I can't wait to try them! This card is beautiful, as all of your cards are.
