Love Grows

Hi Peeps,

Brrrr, were in minus temperatures and the snow is still with us. Wish I could stay at home :(

My card today is my DT card for the Copic Marker Europe blog, and boy this is certainly one team of talented ladies.  I was also asked by my teamie Franz to guest for Deep Ocean Challenge and of course I said yes, another very talented team.  The theme at DOC is anything but square.  Now today is also challenge day over at Marianne Design Divas with a theme of flags/banners, so my card fits all 3. Phew, got there in the end!

The image is a Lili of the Valley stamp that has been in my collection for dare I say a couple of years.  You know how it is when you just have to have a stamp even if it has to wait its turn to be inked, lol.

The base of the card has been cut out with a Go Kreate Die. The gorgeous papers are by Pion and I chose to colour in monotones.  I have used the Warm Grey family, just love these markers.

Here's another picture with the tag taken out.

All edges have been distressed with walnut stain distress inks and a little dashing of Snow Tex.

Copics Used:- W7, W5, W3, W1, W00

Thanks for popping by today.  I look forward to reading your comments.
