Perfect Sentiment Challenge - Inspired with Love

Love is shown in so many ways and said in 100's of languages.  It has to be the sentiment that is universal.  I love you.  Something so easy with such an ability to make the person in receipt of this affection feeling fantastic.

This week at Perfect Sentiment the challenge is to create a card with a sentiment that lets someone know you “love them”.   It doesn't have to be Valentine's Day inspired, just love.  The twist is to use the photo below as your inspiration for the design of your card.  Be sure to let us know what from this photo you drew upon your inspiration.  Also, don't forget the sentiment must be on the front of the card.

Look at all there is in the photo below to inspire you:

From the inspiration photo above the first thing that stood out to me were  the colors:  pink, red, and white.  Second, were the flowers at the top, followed by the pink cushions on the chair and the tablecloth.  Using that I created the below with the pin, red, and white.  The flower in the top corner I made using a 2" Gluber and pink tulle.  Instead of using rhinestones to embellish it I used heart brads.  The various patterned papers represent the different textures.

Copics used to color the Penny Black image, a pink tulle bow, and a sentiment finish it off.
"If I know what love is, it is because of you."  

I chose this sentiment thinking of my husband immediately.  We always say we are each other's balance.  I have never known anyone to be so patient and keep his cool all the time.  His heart is full of love and I have never doubted for a second his love for me.  As I write this post it comes to me there are so many that show us love throughout our entire lives.  Family seems to be the given, followed by close friends, but then I can think of numerous other influences in one's life that show us love.

This week's prize is one digital image from Shelley's Images.  Thank you to them for their continued support!

Wait....keep reading. There is more to win...
