I {Heart} U

Hi All!  I've got a sweet little card for you today that's going to go into a few different challenges!  But first things first...
I have to admit that I've been a little obsessed with coloring images in black and white with my Copics lately....I don't know what it is but when I look at an image I see it two ways- one in color and one in black and white.  Maybe it's the simplicity or the classic look B & W brings but I couldn't resist making a challenge card at least once with a black and white image (and who am I kidding?  there will probably be many more to come!), here I've used the digi stamp Lil' Valentine Luca, who you can pick up here, from Tickled Pink Stamps
This card was fun because I got to use a couple of brand new things I picked up at the store...the rolled rose from Michael's (love clearance finds!) and the Kiss word stick by Tim Holtz.  The card itself came together pretty easily, just a few ribbons here and a couple flowers there :)  The biggest challenge ended up being taking pictures for the blog since the heart, with the I {heart} U sentiment is actually a mirror.  Try getting a picture of a mirror up close without actually getting your image in it- wasn't easy but I eventually prevailed! 
This card is going in the following challenges: Tickled Pink Challenge: I {heart} You, Copic Creations: Anything New and Stamp Something: Anything Goes
Supplies: Image- Digital Stamp Lil Valentine Luca Tickled Pink Stamps; Copics- W0 W1 W3 W5 W7 W9; Xpress Copic Paper; Card base- Truly Yours Archiver's; Kiss Word Stick- Tim Holtz; DP- We R Memory Keepers Merry January Scarf; Cardstock- Bazzill Basic Paper Fawn Small Scallop; Flowers- Paper rose- Recollections Michael's, Blue and white paper- Green Tara; Distress Ink- Frayed Burlap; Lace Embellishments- Recollections Michael's; Heart Mirror- Heidi Swapp; Pearls- my stash
