By The Cute and GIrly - Love

I'm a bit later than planned (ok a lot later) but I had to get the Cute and Girly winners post done so had to do that first, but better late than never.I have to warn you though, this is gonna be quite a long post!
The challenge over at By The Cute and Girly this month is LOVE, so a nice easy one and I'm sure there will be loads of other challenge blogs doing the love theme over the next few weeks so you will be able to combine your entries with some of those as well :)
This month I only made a card and altered a candle tin but the other girls have loads more eye candy for you as always, so pop on over and see what they have been up to.

So here's the card I made.

Isn't this image just the sweetest? I love it! I don't know who makes this stamp as I got the image in a blog candy win ages ago, so if you know who makes the stamp, please do let me know. I coloured the image with Copics, but the paper it was stamped on is rough like watercolour paper so it was really difficult to blend. I also got some gorgeous Hanglars and some Magnolias, WOJ and some other images when I got this one but I can't really user them as the paper they are stamped on is rougher than this one and I have started to use my pencils most of the time and just doesn't blend :( even with the copics, it is really hard to colour them, hence why I haven't used them yet.
The paper I have used is Papermania from the Exquisite stack. I didn't do loads of layers on this card because it's quite a big image, instead I just added strip across the middle with some lace from my stash on top.
The flowers are a mix of Prima, one from my stash and the little roses are ones I made myself with some ribbon because I couldn't find little flowers to match my papers and I wanted roses. I did find some little roses like this in a similar colour afterwards though so I could of saved myself the trouble of making them if I just looked a bit harder lol. I made a few extra as well so I can use them another day.
The pearl spray is from a local florist warehouse and I sprayed all the flowers with some glimmer mist to give them some sparkle.

I took a few pics of the candle tin and didn't know which one to show, so I am showing you a few instead lol.

The lid.

The next one is the back of the tin.And I promise this is the last one lol. This one is the front side.

I was going to take a pic of the tin before I covered it but I forgot lol. It's just a little tin that has a scented candle inside and the lid was see through which I was going to leave but I decided to use the sweet Tilda instead.

The paper is Stampin Up, image of course is a Magnolia. I got this stamps from a very sweet blogging friend (thanks hunni xx) as she knew I didn't have any Magnolias of my own.
I coloured Tilda with Polychromos Pencils and Sansodor then cut her out with my nesties. I did want to use the whole image but she didn't fit :(
The lace, ribbon and heart are from my stash, and the flowers are from Tabby Crafts and The Works.
I finished it off with some pearl beading which I also found in my stash. I have no idea where it came from but it came in handy for this and the FSS heart box I made last week :)

Right I think I might have put you to sleep by now, that's if you even made it to the bottom! lol, so will sign off now and will be back tomorrow for Digital Tuesday.
