The Kiss

Good Morning  and Welcome.

As Valentine's day approaches I'm showing an Anniversary card that I made a while ago.

I used a small stamp I bought from ebay which I stamped with black Archival  then just added a touch of colour to the image.  I put some fine glitter on the moon.

I used a Sizzix set to cut out the image and the stamp edge and a newspaper print stamp from the same set which was randomly stamped onto white card.

Next I smooshed the card in a few places with watered down distress ink which was on my craft mat, added a few splats and when it was dry I inked round the edge with the same coloured distress ink.

The two big stars were cut with Spellbinders dies then the larger was  embossed  in my Cuttlebug.  The sentiment peel off and two small stars continued my "using up" regime.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Delicious Doodles Challenge  "Love is in the Air" and also join in again at
Pixies Snippets Playground - Week 214  also
