Love is in the air

This week's challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog is to finish complete a sentiment beginning with "Love is..." using a Penny Black stamp. I just had to play along with this darling Penny Black stamp titled, Furry Embrace.

I colored the image with Prisma Color Pencils (I do not use a blending medium). The gorgeous ribbon was the inspiration for the color theme for the card. The ribbon spool states the maker is Celebrate It and I found it in the sale bin at Michaels. I just love it and the branches and flowers seemed to complement the branch and flowers holding the rope swing.

The sentiment, "Love is in the air" is computer generated and I felt expressed the emotion of these two kitties on the swing.

I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the hearts beneath the image and a Stampin' Up! oval punch to punch out the sentiment. The leaves are also a Martha Stewart punch. The flowers are from Recollections. Then I added touches of Cottoncandy Stickles on the flowers and kittens.
I don't send a lot of Valentines but I do have some special people that I like to share a Valentine note with and I know exactly who this sweet "Love is in the Air" will be sent to.
