Love Is In The Air

Hello and happy weekend Everyone !!!

Are you ready for another unique challenge at Saturday Spotlight ... GREAT! Here is what the Spotlight Divas are challenging YOU to try this week:

The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to make a Valentine/wedding/ love style creation with NO HEARTS used on it!! So think of another way to represent "love" without using hearts!

Here is what I've come up with:

This lovely image & sentiment panel are from the Crafty Secrets Valentine Cotton Scraps. Aren't they awesome! I just love vintage images and even without the sentiment ... this one scream LOVE!!
I've triple bordered the main image using black card stock and a scrap of DCWV dp (which I distressed) in between. The background paper is Graphic45 and the snippet of music paper is by The Paper Studio. The embellishment consist of Opaline half pearls by Basic Grey and Prima flowers.
I had to really think for a moment on this one!!! How do you say Love / Valentine / Wedding without hearts???? Well in my book ... kissing ALWAYS says LOVE ... so that's the route I took. I can't wait to see how YOU interpret our challenge this week!!

This does SCREAM love! You know dar, that no one can do vintage quite like you. I'm mad about that image and the colors you chose to use. This is a fun challenge, I may have to give this one a whirl!(When the kiddos are gone)

Beautiful! No need for hearts here! The love is oozing off of your card. I am picturing him just returning from a military deployment. And of course, I love the teal :)
