House Mouse & Friends Challenge #112

I made this card for the House Mouse & Friends Blog Hop challenge #112  which is to make a love-themed project using more than one heart. This adorable little image always makes me smile, so I decided to use it for this challenge
I colored the image with Copics, and cut it out using a Spellbinders labels 10 die, then hand cut the red mat underneath, edging with a white gel pen. The next layer was done with a labels 18, and that panel was edged with a black marker. It's all layered on a top note die cut that was embossed with SU!'s square lattice embossing folder. I added 2 white heart brads, along with a tiny red rose and a few ferns done with a MS punch. Lastly, the background was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder from the curlique and hearts set. The sentiment is from SU!.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Carol, so sweet. Love all the layers and that image is precious. And you know I love those ferns. The red square lattace top note looks almost like a material instead of card stock. I just love that embossing folder. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
