With Love

Happy Friday morning friends :)  Who doesn’t love to hear that they are loved?  Knowing that nobody’s hands are raised, it’s clear that everyone of us needs to hear it and know it.  So, this card is for you!  I’m sending my love!  
I pulled out the very lovely Geraniums Take Two from Power Poppy and gave them some Copic love in colouring to match up these new papers from Carta Bella, Words of Love, a really lovely pack of paper!   I even tried to really tone down the greens to give them almost a grey colour tone so that the reds would really pop. Then I framed them out with a Spellbinders A2 Border on the right side and some beautiful ric rack velvet ribbon and some gems. 

The little heart is a die by The Cat’s Pajamas, and here are the Copics I used below.  

The Bloom Brigade has pretties ahead!  Here’s who’s playing along...
