H2H - Fall in Love with...

The theme for this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge is "Fall in Love with..." Valentine's Day is coming up before much longer but I decided to do something different for this theme and create an overall HAPPY card - with a Happy Everything approach. It encompasses falling in love with life rather than one specific thing. 

I chose to use some of the muted papers from the Hello Lovely paper pack and focus on the gorgeous stamp set that coordinates with this paper pack called "Hello Lovely - Cardmaking". The floral clusters are awesome - I chose to stamp them in New England Ivy as some of the flowers also get stamped in the process. I figured I could just stamp the flowers again and cut them out to layer them on top. I coloured the open sections using my ShinHan markers. That way, my leaves remained green from the original stamped colour. 

Here is my project for this challenge. 

Since it is already January 30th, this challenge is really the first February challenge. You have the entire month of February to enter this or any of the February challenges. Show us what you can do with this challenge of any of the upcoming ones this month at Heart 2 Heart
