Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #143…Love is in the Air

Hello to all my friends, followers and readers out there in blogland! I'm here today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #143, the theme is Love is in the Air. February is the month of love and with Valentine's Day right around the corner, this is the perfect month to create a card for someone special in your life. So, it is time to get in the mood and sing that old song from the 70's written by John Paul Young and sung by Tom Jones. Here, I'll even start off the first couple of lines for you. It is certain to get those feelings of love stirred and get you in the mood to create a card for someone near and dear to your heart!

  ♩ ♫  ♪  ♪ ♫ ♩♩ ♫  ♪  ♪ ♫ ♩
 Love is in the air...everywhere I look around
Love is in the air...every sight and every sound
  ♩ ♫  ♪  ♪ ♫ ♩♩ ♫  ♪  ♪ ♫ ♩

Now, while you are either humming along or cursing me for the earworm I just stuck you with, check out the my card and details.  I hope that I haven't forgotten anything important:

General Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). I will print it out and assemble it a later date.


Digital Image Details:
  • You Moove Me: Such an adorable image perfect for any love related card. You can find it in Pattie's Etsy shop by clicking on the image name or watermark linked below.
  • This image has been coloured combining a couple of different techniques. Additional Credits include:
    • sky cloud background created in my Rebelle Program
    • grass is an image courtesy of Textures 4 Photoshop
    • the cows themselves have been paper pieced with cow fur textures courtesy of My Free Textures 

Digital Sentiment Details:
  • The sentiment is one I created for the purposes of this card.

Digital Embellishments:
  • The hearts used as accents are from Point and Poem. They were obtained in a limited time bundle from Design Cuts.
  • The ric rac ribbon is from the Winter Romance kit designed by Correen Silke and is available at ComputerScrapbook.
  • The banner shape in behind the sentiment was designed by Marisa Lerin, Pixel Scrapper.

Digital Embellishment Details:
  • I have used basic shapes in Photoshop Elements to create matting in behind the image and sentiment.
  • I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.

Challenges I am hoping to enter...

You have until March 1st to enter our challenge which should give you lots of time to get a creation done. Remember the theme is Love is in the Air. I really hope that you will be able to join us. You can enter twice per challenge and of course MUST follow all the challenge requirements that are posted for each challenge (please click HERE to become familiar with all the rules). In addition to all the typical criterion, you MUST USE A DIGITAL OR STAMPED IMAGE to qualify for the drawing (unless stated otherwise). We would absolutely love to see you use a Pattie's Creations (PC) image on your card, but you are allowed to use other images. If you do use a PC image, you will gain an extra entry in the draw and will have a better chance to WIN!  Easy Peasy right?!

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out what my fabulous teammates have offered up for inspiration. Oh and don't forget…Pattie offers up a new freebie the first Friday of the month and it will remain up for approximately two weeks; so, be sure to pop over and check it out as well!

Well guys, that is it for this one. Hopefully I will see you all very soon.

Until next time,

Lisa, your card is adorable. Love the cows and the scene. WI is the dairy state so cows are a big deal around here, hehe.

Hi Lisa! I seen these adorable cows in Bloglovin and had to come in and tell you how much I love them... I think it is pretty cool it is done digitally and you will assemble later, I wish I still had all my programs , it sounds like a time saver which I am steering towards these days. It is nice to visit you again! Big hugs
