Charisma Cardz DT - Magic Numbers

Morning my sweet stamping friends! Can you believe we've passed half way through the week already? Well to me Thursday only means one thing, a brand new challenge theme over at Charisma Cardz and this week the theme of "Magic Numbers" has been chosen by the whole of the design team. As we are being sponsored this week by Lili of the Valley and Some Odd Girl I decided it was a good enough excuse for me to use my brand new LOTV stamp woohooo!! I got inspiration from the lovely Dena who put hers & her hubby's initials on the book and since we need to use numbers this week I decided to write sixteen years on the book as my DH and I will be married that long this year so I've put the card away and will give it to him on our anniversary which is on the 3rd of June. Hope I don't forget that I have a card made by then rofl!
I have coloured this sweet little image in with my Copics as usual and cut it out with nesties. The dps are Love Letters by Mindy Terasawa. They seem to be my favourite paper pad at the mo as they are beautifully embossed and glittered. The swirl is a Tim Holtz die and the blooms are from Wild Orchid Crafs. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash and the leaves are an MS punch. I'll be entering my card into the following challenges :
Bunny Zoe's - Love is in the air
Craft your days away - Anything goes
Papertake Weekly - Ribbons & pearls
Secret Crafter - With love
The Ribbon Girl - Pink & Green
Truly Scrumptious - Brown, pink & green
Thanks for stopping by. I do hope you'll join in with our challenge this week as I know how many of you love LOTV and who knows you could be the lucky winner. My teamies over at Charisma have made some lovely cards to inspire you to please do hop on over there. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
