Love Letters & Cookies!

 Hey everyone!  Today I'm playing along with the Flourishes team for the January Release Week Challenge!  Click here for all the rules and instructions.  This month's challenge is a broad one that’s all about LOVE — use love as your theme, use letters as a focal point, or use the colors of love in shades of pink and red.

So here is my love inspired creation using some fun shades of love...

Cookie Bouquet

For my card, I first started out by created a fun heart edged circle on my Klic N'Kut machine.  I cut it out of Flourishes "Color Made Easy" dark red cardstock from the "Poppy" collection. Then I designed a number of other circles with in that circle using the gorgeous medium and dark purples from the "Crocus" collection.

Then I cut a circle of Flourishes Classic White cardstock using Spellbinder's Classic Circle dies and stamped my cookie bouquet image from the "Love Sweet Love" stamp set in the center using Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink.  I then coloured my image using a variety of Copic markers; V12, V15, V17, R17, R27, E27, E31, E34 and RV21.  Since the cookies have smooth icing on them, I added a little bit of a shine to them using a Sakura Glaze pen.

Make sure you check out the DT designs for this challenge! They are fabulous!!!  Hope to see you join in the fun this week!
