Take It to Heart with Monkey Challenge 93: Love!

Love is in the air! I love this image from the Take It to Heart stamp set in the Occasions Mini. I stamped it in Calypso Coral ink, sponged it with Pool Party ink, and punched it out with the 1-1/4" circle punch, layering it on a 1-3/8" circle of Early Espresso, which is then layered on two Blossom punched flowers.

I'm crazy about the Everyday Enchantment dsp in the Sale-a-Bration Mini Catalog. This is just one of the fabulous patterned pieces, and best of all, you may choose it for FREE with a $50 order! Free is always the right price!!! I love those little Calypso Coral Baker's Twine bows too.

This close-up shows the embossed little hearts on the pennants, which were punched. Aren't they cute?

Here's the sketch I used. I love that little kitty's face! It's the best.

Your hearts embossed on the pennants is super cute. I love the way you used this image in a circle...and as a centre of the flower. Lovely.
