Quill You Be My Valentine

Here's my card for this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS anything goes challenge.  I went with a Valentine's Day theme using the adorable Love Struck stamp set and coordinating Love Struck Icons dies.

Quill You Be My Valentine card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper SmoochesI stamped the sweet cupid image on white cardstock, then colored him with Copic markers and used the matching die to cut him out.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I paper pieced his outfit with a scrap of patterned paper.

I used dimensional dots to adhere the cupid image to a piece of ombre heart patterned paper.  A shimmery white cloud, die cut with one of the Spectrum Icons dies, was tucked underneath the cupid.  I stamped the set's "quill you be my Valentine" sentiment above the image in navy pigment ink.   A few white sequins scattered around the cupid add a little sparkle to the design.  I adhered the finished panel to a navy card base to match the sentiment.
