Love kinda thing..

Assalam o Alaikum, readers!

Hope you all are having a great week, so far. First and foremost, thanks to everyone who voted for my last card. I won that challenge *grin* .. Had a great time shopping with my winning voucher.
When you win something, you automatically get motivated. That's what happened with me too. Hence, I'm sharing another entry for the next challenge.
This time round, i have combined two challenges. First is Artful Crafting Challenge 10, and second is the Unity's weekly challenge. You can find the details over on the facebook group of Unity (Show & Tell).

This is my card for the Artful Crafting challenge 10, which is all about Love. February, really is a month of love for me. My hubby's birthday is in February, and this card is basically for him. Just hoping that he finds it good enough to keep in his drawer :p Thats where all my prev cards are kept.

About the card, I started off by smooshing distress inks on a watercolor paper by Rangers. I have used Picked raspberry, spiced marmlade, spun sugar and mustard seed. After the inks were dried, I added embossing paste through the tim holtz dot fade layering stencil. I then added some more splatters of distress sprays, to give my background more detail. The fussy cut butterflies and the couple under umbrella are the heat embossed stamps by Unity Stamps. I have lightly stamped my background using the same butterfly stamp by Unity.

I have coated the resin frame with gel medium and then generously sprinkled glass glitter on that. Trust me, it was a hard decision to do that. I am so in love with the simplicity of these resin frames by Prima, that it was really a TASK for me to cover this beauty. But Alhamdulillah it turned out into another sparkling beauty. I have added guaze/cheesecloth in the back of the frame and butterflies to give it a lil texture.
I have colored the couple, using distress inks. And for girl's dress, which is supposed to be golden; I used prima bloom spray in golden color. I added wink of stella on the umbrella to give my image more of a dreamy look. I'm in LOVE with the look, like seriously!!!!!!

I heat embossed the sentiment, and layer it on top of the glittered frame. The flowers are by Prima, as well. I have added a golden washi tape on the card base to finish off the look, and adhered my panel on the base.
I have got almost all the supplies from Artful Crafting shop.
Can you see the layering and depth? I'm excited to share this with my husband, cant wait to see his expressions. :)
This is it for now.
Dont forget to leave your comments and feedback. That helps me grow as a card-maker.
