Love Letter

Good morning, I hope everyone is well and enjoying the new week.  I would like to extend a very warm welcome to my latest follower - thank you so much for joining me Flora.

We have a new challenge for you at Bearly Mine Designs and this week we have a sketch for you.  I have used a Saturated Canary image, many thanks to Krista for letting me choose one of her fabulous images to work with.

At first I tried to colour her top in red, but after lots of failed attempts (I find red such a difficult colour to use) I had a look around the internet for inspiration and found a fabulous image on the Copic Marker Europe Blog with her Top left white and so that is what I did. My papers are from one of my Bearly Mine Designs CDs, full details of everything I have used are listed below.

Card Recipe:

Tools:  Spellbinders - Labels Eighteen, X-cut - Scalloped border punch, Crafter's Companion - Epiphany Shape Studio Heart, Punch-Bunch - Medium Oak Leaf
Embellishments:  Flowers, leaf, pearls, ribbon and twine from stash
Sentiment:  Rub-on from stash

This is the sketch we would like you to follow:
