You Fill My Life With Love!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!!

Here is my card for today's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG89! It's a color challenge (haven't done one in ages...I really miss them!) brought to us by the Trendsetter of the Week, the fabulous Julie Lacey!!

By now, it's probably not a shock to see that I've used the new Buckets Of Love set again. I am seriously in love with this set...I think it just may be my favorite TSG set...ever! Torico is SUCH an amazing illustrator! I just love everything she does!

I started with my sweet pal Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch from yesterday, SSSC99 and I didn't use a SINGLE piece of patterned paper on my card...just cardstock!

I stamped the bucket, and then the hearts, in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored the entire image with Copic Markers. I then added some Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter to the hearts...I love a bit of sparkle!

I embossed the background panel of Smokey Shadow and Pure Poppy with the new Hearts Impression Plate from Taylored Expressions, and created the border with the new Hearts Border Die, also from TE.

A bit of gingham ribbon, a red felt heart (created with the Die-Namics Hearts A Plenty Die from MFT), and some bling finish this one off. Of course, I sewed all the layers with my sewing machine.

We would LOVE for you to play along with this TSG Challenge! Here are the deets:
