Love

First of two from me today - have been playing about with embellishments and ribbon and stuff and this is what I came up with.
'The Kiss' just makes me smile every time I see it! I love the stance on the little boy - tentaively bent forward, holding her arms before he plants a smacker behind the hat! And her feet - one on tiptoe and the other off the floor - she is taken completely by surprise... or is she???!!!!!
Anyway - I coloured with promarkers and cut out using a Nellie Snellen die which I have had for a while and only used once before - I mounted it onto the same backing paper as I used for the background of the card. The pale blue paper is by K and Co and the design doesn't show up very well on the photo - it has flourishes on it in a slightly darker shade of blue.
The lace etc all came from my stash and the flowers are also things I've had for ages and am now deciding to use! I added a small chipboard flourish (coloured with Spun Sugar distress ink), a silver butterfly charm, some pearls and a pink metal heart and finally placed a metallic 'Love' sentiment in the top corner.
Lots of challenges this week, not surprisingly mostly Love or Valentine themed!

  7. Thanks for sharing the entire poem... You touched my soul. I love it, too. And I was a big fan of Wordsworth... my older one goes to an International school where she will probably never be touched by Wordsworth... her loss!

    You have an amazing memory to remember it. I have been to Lake District - just so very scenic. My hubby's sis and bro-in-law used to live there before they moved to London.
