Young Lovers

Have you been along to the Hotspot Challenge for this months challenge yet?

Why not pop along and have a look at this months challenge which is called "case a cake" and we're being tasked to design with the inspiration from all of those yummy wedding cakes.  From ribbons, to colour, from flowers to embellishments - surely you can come up with some inspiration!  We would love to see what you come up with and the challenge is open until 31st May so you've still got time.

Here's the card I've made as a reminder and I've used one of the images from McMahon Five Designs called Young Lovers.  The image has been coloured using Promarkers and decoupaged onto a Spellbinders Nestability Fleur des Lis square, gold fine line peel offs and gems were added for extra effect.

The sentiment is from the Lily of theValley "For You" circular sentiments stamp set which fits perfectly into a Spellbinders Nestability "lacey circle" with gems added to the centre of the flowers in the sentiment.

The card and ribbon were from my stash.
