Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy stamps as an exclusive, limited time only design. 100% of the proceeds are going to help in the relief efforts in Haiti. If you would like more information, please click on one of the blinkies in the right side bar of my blog.
CPS sketch as my starting point and colored the image using Copic Markers. I used a circle Nestability to cut out the horse then placed it on a large scalloped circle. The little chocolate hearts were each placed individually. They were punched using one of the new Martha Stewart border punches from ABC Toys & Crafts. The pink strip running along the center was created using the Martha Stewart Lace Doily border punch which happens to be on SALE for $11.19
The inside sentiment "Make the Everyday Magical" is by Unity. If you look closely, you can see that I added a tiny, pink rhinestone to dot the "i" in "magical". That is a larger clear rhinestone in the center of the pink bow (all of the bows were created with a Martha Stewart punch)
Other Challenges I used:
Cute Card Thursday: Love Theme (does not have to be a Valentine)
Simon Says Challenge: What's Love Got to do with it (again does not have to be a Valentine)
Creative Inspirations: Leftovers (I ALWWAYS use my scraps, just look at those little hearts, guarantee the bows were punched from scraps laying around my table)
