Aptee'tude Love

I play along with the CPS Card Sketches almost weekly and this week marks their 5th anniversary!!  Each day, from January 29th through February 18th, they're posting a sketch from the past.  Today they posted #166 -

I pulled out one of my new favoite stamps - Stamping Bella's Aptee'tude - and used her as my focal point. 

I stamped the image and colored her in with my Copics and Spicas.  I cut her out with a circle Spellbinders die.  I used another die, two sizes up, for the scalloped circle mat.  For the card base, I used the I {Love} Love roller wheel from Stampin' Up!  Instead of adding a paper band through the center, I opted to tie some ribbon around the card (living up to my self challenge of using my ribbon stash this week :-)).

Once I had her all assembled, I felt like it was missing something so I added a few hearts from Stampin' Up!'s I {Heart} Hearts stamp set.  I layered the hearts and covered them with some crystal accent to make them shine.

Here's a close up of the coloring.  I love how those Spicas sparkle!!

For the inside, I used the same size circle as I did for the front.  I used the same pattern paper, but one size smaller with the scalloped circle.  I stamped the I {Love}Love just once in the center and added the same hearts from the front.  Then I finished it off with the Happy Love Day.

Since it's a love card I had to use a few red copics, which happens to be the challenge this week at iCopic, so I'll be playing along with them too -
