Crafty Sentiments Designs 'Valentines/Love' Challenge

Good morning to you all and thank you for popping by today.
This week at Crafty Sentiments Designs we have the challenge of 'Valentines/Love'. I really didn't want to make yet another Valentines/Love card so opted to make a banner.
I cut 6 postage stamp shapes on my Cricut, then cut rectangles to fit inside those and the lettering to spell 'Love' and '4U'. I placed an image of the adorable  newly released Crafty Sentiments 'Vicky' in the first panel and the lettering followed. I also cut three hearts and stamped these with Peachy Keen 'Happy Lashes' face assortment stamps.

Here is a close up of 'Vicky', you will notice that she has been embossed with the Cuttlebug 'Tiny Bubbles' folder. I did this by mistake when embossing the other pieces but quite like the effect so left it.

Sorry these photo's are not great I am really shaky at the moment and as I had to put it on the wall to photograph it was not easy.

Cardstock - Doublemates
Medium - Promarkers
Ribbon - Stash

Promarkers Used:-
Skin - Ivory, Blush & Oatmeal
