SMC Challenge #4 Duel Theme

ILoveYOUajhcopy It’s Friday and that means a Sew Many Cards Challenge! It is a Dual Theme…. Make a card with a Valentine Theme and with the colors red, pink and white! Please use Sew Many Cards digital images if you have them and if you don’t, then head on over to the challenge blog to pick up the Friday Freebie image!

Our sponsor this week is TELLENS PLACE, You can check out their blog here. Prize Package is $10 Gift Certificate to Tellen’s Designs

Terry Oulboub is owner and she had this to say: “Tellen’s Place Designs is the home of Tellen Design images. These images are drawn by the owner, Terry’s, son. Terry thought it would be fun for her son to continue these images for her as he had done in 1999, when she first began selling her crafts at various venues. With the digital world becoming such an excited and explosive place with thousands of images to delight everyone’s fancy, it seemed natural to add to that universe.

Tellen’s Place Designs became home to these images for a wide variety of reasons. Having a home to call their own, this opened the door to creativity on so many levels; especially for beginners. Adding card and mini album kits answered many calls to those who wanted to dabble in the scrap world but did not have the time or space to house all of the goods needed to “scrap a world fantastic.”

Tellen’s Place is the beginning, where it all started. It is a place where Tellen Design images come to life through the weekly challenges. We are delighted to share the digital world with others and even more delighted to sponsor Sew Many Challenges, another wonderful place to be. We invite you to visit us at your next opportunity.”

I decided to use Miki with his alphabet blocks this week.  I added cotton candy stickles to the “I” and “you” and Christmas red stickles to the heart.  Cut out the circle with a circle coluzzle and then the scalloped circle with Spellbinders. Image was colored with copics. I even colored the ribbon (it was white) with the same copic as the middle block (R21) and added white dots with white gel pen so it would tie in with the image/scallop circle. I sponged some pink around the circle to add a little bit of a pinkish glow.
