"Heart"-y Plant

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me what's going on with the weather?  We were starting to get some nice sunshine, and above freezing temperatures, and then we get a snow storm, and now we are heading into summer-like temps!  I just want summer, and THAT'S IT!  LOL, ok, enough demanding...

I desperately wanted to play along with some of my Spellbinders, and some delicious Bella images, so here we go...

I pulled out the lovely Hearty Plant for Lulu image - I am on a Lulu kick these days....note to self: one day I must try to use some other images :-)

So I kept it pretty clean - PTI White base, and I used some SU Slumber Party DSP with a black mat.  On top of that, I embossed another piece of PTI White with my SU embossing folder, and matted that with black.  I also added 3 Martha Stewart pearls to the left side.

I stamped the plant in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Bella's Bestest Paper, coloured it with Copics and Prismacolors, cut it out with Rectangle Nesties, and sponged some Wheat Dew Drop ink in the stencil. 
I also punched out one of the Spellbinder's Fleur De Lis Pennant Shapeabilities, cut it in half, and added one half to the top of the rectangle, and one to the bottom.  Then, I plopped some more pearls in the corners.

Copics used:
*Tree branches: E49
*Tree Bow, roses and hearts: R22, R24, R27, R29
*Box: W3, W5, W7
*Box Bow: BG11, BG13, BG15
Don't forget about Lindabella's sketch challenge posted over at the Bloggabella for this week!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
