A Little Love

Happy Thursday to all of you.  Since it's Thursday, that means we have a new challenge for you over on the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog.  Our challenge this week is to use dots.  Now, how easy is that?

I decided to use Little Love Duck today.  I love the heart in his mouth and his big old boots ... he's so cute.  I used copics and colored pencils and added StarDust stickles to the heart and Glossy Accents to his beak.  I cut out Little Love Duck and popped him up on some cardstock that I embossed with my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  My heart border was made with my Martha Stewart punch.  I used one of the yo-yo flowers I made for my tutorial here.  My layout is a sketch from The Sweet Stop.

Here's the latest release from Meljen's Designs.  You can find all the Meljen's Designs images over at Whimsy Stamps.  Be sure to stop by the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog to check out the fantastic cards made by the talented DT.  I hope you find the time to play along in our challenge this week.
