Paper Smooches SPARKS-November Picture Perfect

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is a Picture Perfect challenge based on this photo.  I took my inspiration from the "love" pillow and the different patterns in the photo to create this card.

Instead of a pillow, I used a speech bubble with a similar shape from the He Said She Said set  and stamped the script "love" sentiment from the Smoocheroos set inside of it.  For a softer look, I embossed both the bubble and the word in white.  The bubble is cut out and adhered to an orange panel with dimensional dots.  I stamped a few hearts with the small solid heart image from the Perpetual Bliss set on the orange panel in a matching orange ink.

The panel is set on a golden yellow panel along with two patterned paper pieces.  I used a damask pattern to represent the pattern on the chair and a gray chevron pattern to represent the pattern seen on the curtains in the background of the photo.  A little yellow twine-tied button finishes it off.
