Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge

Hi Folks
Excited as today is the first challenge I am participating in as a fully fledged member of Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge team.
The challenge for this fortnight is 'Love Is In The Air'.  Our sponsors for this challenge are Little Miss Muffet Stamps and LOTV.  So two great prizes to be won.

One lucky person will win a $10 gift certificate from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

One lucky person will win a £10 voucher to spend in the Lily of the Valley store.

The image I have used is called 'Monster Love' from Little Miss Muffet and what a cutie he is too.
 I opted to go with my favourite colour of purple for the challenge.  I coloured the image using promarkers and cut him out using one of my label spellbinders.  Added some distress ink around the edges.  I also did some faux stitching around all of the panels.  The papers I used were from my stash (can't remember where I got them from and no indication on the papers).  Embellishments used were some ribbon, flowers from WOC, some cut out hearts and a little heart charm.  Made my own sentiment using peel offs.

Why not pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge where you will find some more inspiration from my talented teamies.  The challenge lasts for two weeks and you can submit any creation as long as it fits with the theme.  So what are you waiting for, head on over and get creating.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Allsorts - One or more hearts
One Stitch At A Time - #98 Anything goes
Hotshot Crafts - #3 Flowers
Pollycraft - #125 Favourite Things (adore anything purple and flowers)
One Stop Craft - #167 Stitching
Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C121 Layer it up

Thanks for popping by and hope to see you again soon.

This is beautiful and I love the layout you used too! Fabulous colors and the brushing around the diecut really centers the image nicely. Too cute! :D

Thanks for using a Little Miss Muffet Stamp and feel free to add this project to our current challenge starting tomorrow... it doesn't even have to follow the theme but with your sentiment, you're covered. LOL
