Bold LOVE

Here is my newest card! LOVE this sketch and color scheme, so festive for Valentine's Day. I chose to use the new Shy Rose Edwin for this card, isnt he just SOOO super cute??!!!!
I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, and I totally LOVE it. I LOVE the bold color combo suggested by Magnolia-licious Challenge for this card. At first, I did not think that I would like it, but I absolutely LOVE it. I used patterned paper from my K&Company Huge stack, which was just perfect!!! I used some flowers from my stash, which also got the stickles treatment, and some black prima pearl swirls. The red pearls were also found in my stash, and I just love how they accent the black.
I colored Edwin with copics -
Skin - E000, E00, R02
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Shirt and shoes- W3, W1, W00
Pants - C9, C7, C3
Rose - G20, G24, R22, R24, R27
Background - G20, G21, G24, BG10
I added Stardust Stickles to the rose. I cut the image out with my Nesties, and distressed the entire image with Victorian Velvet Distress ink to match the design paper.
The inside of the card was finished off with some more of the design paper, and a black silk ribbon and bow.
Here is the artsy view!!!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

  16. Becca, a beautiful card! Don’t know if you can say that about a card with a male image on it, but IT IS. Nice to see an Edwin for a change. Yeah, he is super cute and you’ve done a wonderful job in colouring him. Love your take on the fabby sketch. Lovely DP’s you have and your rose is to die for. Terrific job in putting this card together. Love it.
    Thanks for playing with us at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.
