Eclectic Ellapu "Love Actually"

Good morning all.

Had a fabulous week...weather started out exceedingly wet and cold but it's been glorious the past few days. We got very wet in Milford on Monday but took a scenic flight from Lake Tekapo round Mount Cook, the Glaciers and down to Milford in sunshine on Thursday...a fabulous trip and well worth the cost. Walked up to the Franz Joseph glacier yesterday, can't get enough of the west coast scenery.

Leaving the glaciers and driving further up the West Coast then through Arthur's Pass and on towards Christchurch today...it's going to be a long day, or it will have been by the time you read this!

Welcome to our first challenge of 2016 at Eclectic Ellapu. I got to set the theme for the Pink Team this month and since it's the month of love I chose "Love Actually". This is the card I've made hubby for Valentine Day...and carried all the way to New Zealand!


Large die from Spellbinders, small one from Lawn Fawn (stacked three high to give dimension). Love stamp was a freebie in last months Craft Stamper. Edge stamp and background script are from STAMPlorations Mixed Media Elements set. All stamping has been heat embossed with gold detail EP...and looks lovely IRL!

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the team, you won't be disappointed.
