With love.. From me to you!!

Hello hello.

I'm back with my entry for another challenge over at Artful Crafting. This time, their theme is ANYTHING GOES but that anything should be WITHOUT flowers. Tricky, no?!
We, no matter what, always tend to add one small flower in almost every project. But hats off to the design team of artful crafting, they have created master pieces. You should have a look at the entries, here.
Inspired much, I have made a card using the only Tilda stamp I own :p

Background is inked and heat embossed. I used the partial embossing technique here, where you ink your stamp using Versamark and then wipe some parts of the inked area of your stamp using a baby wipe. And then stamp. That way, you only get some areas of your stamp.
Tilda is colored using Distress inks. I used walnut stain, vintage photo, barn door, black soot and spun sugar. I'm not so good with the shading though. But I have tried my best to keep it simple.
After coloring the Tilda, I fussy cut the image and mount that on my base. Oh and to raise it a little, I added thick chipboard pieces behind the image. I do not use foam tape now, it wont stick for long.
Sentiment is heat embossed on black cardstock using white embossing powder.
I finished this card by layering the base on red and then paste it on black folded card. Inside is slightly embellished, and have a birthday related sentiment.

Much love,
