Hello All – Welcome to another challenge at Sparkles!  February is the LOVE month so we want to see Hearts, Pearls and Ribbon or Lace on your projects this time round.  We’re sponsored by the fabulous folks at Crafty Ribbons

I have a very simple project this time round.  I’ve been very busy at work again and I also picked up a bad cold, so I’ve struggled to get into the mood to create to be honest.  I hope to be feeling better and back to my old self very soon though.

I used this sweet image from House Mouse, only it’s second outing in the few years I’ve owned it!  My colouring was done with Prisma Pencils and I tickled the rose with a Sakura Glitter Pen.  All of the papers are a free download from Sizzix and the pink card is from the snippets pile; that papers received a spray of Perfect Pearls Mist too.  The hearts were cut with a Provocraft die and the sentiment is from Penny Black.  The LO is from Sketch and Stash, but I rotated it.

Please pop over to the main Sparkles blog to see the wonderful inspiration my teamies have for you this month.
