A THEME CHALLENGE AT BUGABOO'S CATCH THE BUG BLOG

This week we have a THEME challenge:


The Theme is Love, with Valentines Day right around the corner this is a great way to finish up those last minute projects and share the inspiration!! 

Basically anything you think of when you hear the theme is acceptable!


Personally, I am now so 'over' red hearts, roses, hugs and kisses for this year, so this is my interpretation of LOVE :


My card features two merged Bugaboo images, viz. 


I coloured the images using alcohol markers and a white gel pen;

Also o my card I used the following from my hoarded stash :

white CS card base
two different DP's
blue CS mat
a Bile text (s a sentiment)

an offcut of shiny orange CS, embellished with blue gems
blue satin ribbon and a heart charm

The metal charm has two children on it, holding hands, showcasing love for one another.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
