Melody of Love - Sneak Peak


Can you believe that's it's January already. Spring will soon be here and I have the most perfect card for you. This card would be perfect for a Valentine's card or for any Spring Time All Occasion Card.
I just love this set. As a matter of fact, with the right papers, I can even see it as a Christmas Card. How's that for versatility.
The stamp set is a new one being release by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps on January 7th and is called Melody of Love. There are so many great word phrases in this set also. The image was colored in with Copic Markers.

I used a skech from Card Positioning Systems (CPS), It was our choice of any of their sketches from 2009. I chose Sketch #54 because it worked perfectly with this stamp.
Also playing along with Clearly Inspired Challenge which required the use of Brads.
Also played along with Crazy 4 Challenges using Polka Dots.

The white frame was made using a Martha Stewart punch.

The card is hand stitched using white embroidery floss. Not sure where the papers are from.
