Still The One

Hi and welcome!  It's time for another Fusion challenge and we've gone for a soft pastel look and a simple sketch.

I went with the inspiration photo this time, concentrating on the pink shades and the hearts.

I used a NBUS die from Poppy Stamps and some distress ink blending onto a strip of Bristol Smooth cardstock. which was spritzed with a Perfect Pearls mist before being adhered behind the heart cut-outs.  The sentiment comes from Taylored Expressions and I finished the card with some clear droplets.

I shot a video while I was making this and then forgot to edit it, so I did a rush edit job tonight and left in my mental block in the voiceover to give you a giggle!  You can watch the video over on YouTube or watch it here.

I'm linking this card up to the Romance challenge at CASology and the Clean and Simple challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.


Edited to Add:  This card got a shout out at CASology.
