Love is in the air

I saved my favorite card for last. This card was a labor of love, with the inking, glittering and stitching on all the layers. I used the Chantilly paper packet- such yummy spring colors! The cricut cuts all came from the Artiste Cartridge.
I stitched the balloon strings by hand, and edges everything in glittery goodness with my jelly roll Stardust glitter pen. Don't you love the bird's little bitty pearl eye?
It took 4 coats of Pink glitter glitz to fill in the letters as completely as I wanted. The bird was inked in Crystal Blue ink, then I applied Chocolate ink with a sponge dauber to his cute little tummy before stamping him onto his matching diecut.
Here's how I finished out the inside of the card. I'm linking this up to the Pile It On Challenge for a Mother and these additional fine challenges to pile it on...

Tomorrow is Friday...time for another Friday Favorite Things giveaway! See ya soon!

This is one of the most beautiful cards I've seen in a long time...great sentiment and what a way to work in the balloons with the hearts and the the stitching....that's the cherry on top!
