Love is in the Air at Catch the Bug Blog!

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! This week's theme is definitely appropriate for the season! 

It's all about

We want to see you whip up a goodie using
that has anything to do with love!

My card features some favorite Bugaboo Stamps characters, Gus & Stella! This is the 
Stella & Gus - Deck of Cards image. I just love the sentiment for this! Even hubby was laughing hard when he read it. (Little did he know....this one's coming his way! Haha! We've been together quite some time, can you tell?! hehehe)

I actually broke the sentiment into two parts (digitally speaking), so that I could use part of it on the outside of the card, and the rest inside. I don't normally finish the inside of my cards, but for this one, I did.

I blinged up the front of this card using some Glossy Accents on both characters glasses. I also added some Stickles, Star Dust, to the poker chips. For the border, I used two Silhouette cuts (Scallop Border Big and Playing Card Suits - Set of 4) to create the border, then filled in the suit cut-outs with some Stickles, Black Diamond and Xmas Red. I used the cut-out Spade and Club on the inside of my card. 
My designer paper is Stampin' Up, Jackpot II. I own the digital files, and printed them out on card stock for my card. I used my Stampin' Up Scallop Border Punch and some ribbon for additional touches.
