Polka Doodles Challenge - That's Amore!

Morning all and hope it's a better day today than yesterday as we had grey skies and loads of rain all day. Friday is here again and this weeks' challenge over at Polka Doodles has been chosen by team mate Miria who hails from Italy - hence the title of the challenge - and she would like to see your projects inspired by a song or film title.
I had a bit of a struggle with mine as my brain went totally blank when I saw this and in the end I had to use Google for some song title inspiration. I decided on Beatles song All You Need Is Love and now I can't stop singing it lol.

I chose a pink and chocolate brown colour combination and most of the elements for my card came from my favourite love themed CD, Love and Cherish, which has everything you could want for a romantic occasion. The little owls from The Twoo of Us collection are just adorable.
The only extras for my easel style card were some chocolate brown polka dot paper from the Sundae of Seasons CD, some plain pink papers and a pink heart jewel from my stash. I also did some punching with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch to make a pretty central border.
A really easy to make card which looks anything but simple.

You have until 12 noon on Sunday 20 February to get your entries in and good luck!

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
Allsorts Week 89 - It Must Be Love, Love, Love
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 89 - Valentines
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - For A Loved One
Digital Tuesday - From The Heart
Papertake Weekly - Have A Heart

Wonderful card, I love those little owls and matched perfectly with the DP. There is a gorgeous new paper pack out at the minute from first edition paper that has glittered and double sided paper with these little cute owls. Just thought you might be interested. The stack is called Sweet Owl.
Thank you for joining in at Craft your passion.
