January Retro-Fresh Challenge

Can you believe how fast January is already flying by?  This month's challenge is to make a love-themed project.  It seems like I can't get my head into using one of the older stamps, because this month's release is just so fabulous! 
The card design is based on Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #33.  The base is Recollections sky blue with layers of soft lavender, SU's Very Vanilla, and designer paper from K & Co.  The border punches are SU's scalloped border and EK Success's pinking hearts.  The baker's twine is SU's cherry cobbler.  The swirls are a Sizzlits die and the hearts are punched from SU's multi hearts punch, then embossed with the Cuttlebug polka dots embossing folder.  The image is TGF's Sweetheart's digi and is colored in copic markers with accents of white gel pen, mounted on dimensionals.  A few crystals add a finishing touch.
Be sure to head to the Farm Fresh Challenge blog and join in on the fun!  April
