On Cloud 9

Hi crafting friends,

It's one day closer to the weekend - yipee!  It's also the start of a new monthly challenge over at Whimsie Doodles and the theme this month is 'Love is in the air'.  Obviously I just had to make a valentine's card!!  For my DT card today I used Cloud 9. This cute little guy is the face of WD Angel Policy information, but he is always hiding in the bottom corner of the blog.  He was crying out to me for some attention so today he has centre stage!

Whimsie Doodles Digital Stamp - Cloud 9
AC Cardstock- Weave
 Papermania Plain Blue Vellums
Plain Vellum - from stash
 Memory Box - Puffy Clouds Dies
 Simon Says Stamp - Falling Hearts Stencil
Simon Says Stamp -Talk Bubbles 2 Dies
Simon Says Stamp - Holiday Shapes Die
Clearly Besotted Stamps - A Little Sentimental
Wendy Vecchi - Embossing Paste
Glue Dots - Invisi Dots for Vellum
Wink of Stella - Clear Pen
Glossy Accents

I love the falling hearts stencil by Simon Says so I just had to use it as my background.  This time I embossed onto light blue vellum and then mounted onto AC cardstock.  The clouds were cut from plain vellum and white card using memory box puffy clouds dies. The speech bubble is a die from Simon says stamp. The sentiments are from a very versatile set from Clearly Besotted Stamps - soo many useful everyday sentiments, I love it. 

Here is a close up.

I would like to link this card up with the following challenges:
Remember to pop over to the Whimsie Doodles Blog  to check out the fabulous makes by the DT team and to enter your 'Love' makes into the challenge.  There are digi's to be won and a chance to be a guest designer for a month. 

Thanks for looking and hope to see you again soon.
Hugs Ax
