Being Deeply Loved...

Hey everyone!  Karber is having a couple of new challenges, and I'm so excited! The KB Cute Monday challenge is "Inspired by a Book" and the Karber Weekly Challenge theme is "Movies".  I could not think of a better way to combine those challenges than by using the awesomely cute Cowardly Lion by  Bugaboo's new Wizard of Oz line! (See the whole line, as well as the other Bugaboo stamps, here.)  With this stamp as an inspiration, I found a fabulous quote by Lao-Tzu, and I was ready to go! (The sentiment says "Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength; loving someone deeply gives you courage."  Isn't that sweet??)  Voila!


The lion was colored with Copics (E21 Baby Skin Pink for the face and stomach, E33 Sand for the body and E37 Sepia for the mane and tail.) The large heart is a Tim Holtz Die cut out of grungeboard and sprayed with Glimmer Mist in Tattered Leather.  It was outlined with Stickles in Waterfall. The little hearts are White Blossom Jewel Stickers in pink and colored using Color Box Pigment in Bronze.  The chocolate paper was embossed using Sizzix Wedding Set #2.  Ribbon is by American Crafts.  Entire card edged with Color Box Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan.  (Isn't that a horse?  I love horses...LOL)

Anyway, I hope you like it.  I had a lot of fun creating the card!

This card is being entered in the following challenges:
Bearly Mine Challenge #3: For Men and/or Boys
Cards for Men #3: Valentine/Love
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #58: Color Combo Chocolate and Blue
Karber Weekly Challenge #24: Digi and Movies

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!  Cheers!
