Feel The Love

Howdy everyone! Today is the day for a new challenge at Catch The Bug! Are you ready?! Today's theme is certainly very appropriate for this time of year.  Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so what better theme than that?!  Our theme for this week is Affairs of the Heart.  Technically, it doesn;t have to be Valentine's Day themed, as long as we see lots of hearts! Sounds easy enough doesn't it? Okay, good, now get busy creating so you can link up with us! You could win digi image prize packs from Bugaboo Stamps!

Need more Affairs of the Heart inspiration?! Check out the fabulous creations at Catch The Bug!

My card layout uses the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches, and features the image, SMonkey Love - Standing Heart, from Bugaboo Stamps. The image is colored with Promarkers.  I used two nesting flower punches, to create the frame for the sock monkey image.  The paper is new and the glittered ribbon and black pearls are from my stash.  The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched with circle punches.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
