True Love for Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Here is a card I hope to use for my son's anniversary or maybe even Valentine's Day. (I'm so glad he doesn't read my blog, but his wife might.) I used an adorable image from MelJen's. I didn't want it to be too girly, so I was inspired by the color combo at Can You Digi It (green) and Celebrate the Occassion (green, white and one more color= blue), especially when I saw this paper from Cosmo Cricket that I'd had stashed away since 2009. The flowers aren't too girly. And besides, my eyes need to see something besides pink this week! Here's the sketch I used from Sweet Sketch Wednesday:


I also wanted to try a different corner treatment on the right, so I used glitter buttons with an adhesive pearl in the depression of the button.  Also, the one in the corner was  threaded and tied with a waxy flax bow behind it. There was a pearl in the glitter flower, so I continued that treatment by adding bitty pearls on the dots of the Meljen's design and on the blue heart that I stamped with "True Love."


The blue patterned paper ("Clementine") and New England Ivy cardstock are from Close To My Heart. The Blue cardstock is Bazzill.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #191 - sketch
Can You Digi It? #28 - use Green
Celebrate the Occassion #97 - Green, White, plus one color (blue)
Cute Card Thursday #254 - a different corner (my upper right corner + corner rounding in design)
Gingerloft #56 - Love is in the Air
