Feel The Love

So, this months DD/DDA challenge(that is Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni) for this month was hosted by my girl Jodi(kharmagirl). The name of her challenge is Feel the Love. Here are the requirements!!
Challenge Focus: A Valentine's Day/Love-y Dove-y card!!

Required Element: Texture!! Anything you can *feel* (ie: Fun Flock, Crystal Effects, Embossing/Debossing, velvet ribbon...and I am sure there are a million more things that I cannot think about!!)

Restricted Element: No RED!! Pink is ok...but no red...let's see what other colors we can use for Valentine's Day!

So, since it is the 20th, I decided to combine mine with Celebrating MFT day. Celebrating MFT(My Favorite Things)day is the 20th of every month. Basically, by this point, you should have received all the goodies you ordered from the last release and be ready to play with them. You get a bonus for using the signature MFT color combo, pink black and white.(okay, not a REAL bonus, but you know what I mean right?!!). I have SO many MFT stamps that I love, but this cute little bunny was begging for me to get him inky, so how could I resist?? I stamped the bunny twice on Gina K. 120lb white and cut the whole bunny out of one, and just the head and ears out of the other. I cut and embossed my layers with my Rectangle Nestabilities. I then added my bunny to the top of it, and adhered the extra head. To give the ears some dimension, I glued his head to the original head, but put the ears up on pop dots. The heart was colored with my Copics and then I painted over it with Angel Wings Shimmerz. I used some YUMMY MFT Digi paper from the Stephanie Fizer Spring pack. The button is from Basic Grey's Bittersweet pack and the clear Heidi Swapp heart is from MFT too. Since Jody says I can't leave my buttons bare, I put some white satin ribbon through it. For my texture, besides the shimmerz, I embossed the black panel at the top and added the textured black ribbon from May Arts on the side. The brads are from SU, part of the Soft Subtles pack. I used Jen del Muro's SFYTT from last weekend.


Leave me some love!!
