Summer Love

I had been wanting to play with these stamps for a long time. I am so glad to have finally get the chance:). They are so that puckering Edwin and the shyness of Tilda. Oh they are so, so cute! I decided to have a go at one of those side step cards; and I will admit that I did not get it on the first try. So don't know if I will try again anytime soon.
I knew I wanted to do a summer love card and was went out to find some nice quotes. Not only did I find this fab quote but I found it as a freebie at Sentimental Sunday....Double caching!! I embellished my card with this Love metal heart, and some golden ribbon, also added that pretty little rosebud :), last I added my dew drops that I can't live without and found these precious tiny buttons in my stash. Altogether super happy with my card :0)
My images were colored with Copics...what else! I decided to go out and try some new hair and skin combinations.(Using Janiel Corley's color combos as inspiration; as I did not have her exact colors) You can find the colors I used below.
Tilda: Hair E13,55,Y21,YR30 SkinE02,01,21,00 Blush R32 Dress BG18,15,11/YR68,65,61 Socks YR65,61,00,0000 Roses R35,32,11/YG93,91
Edwin: Hair E57,23,31 Skin E13,11,00 Blush R02 Jeans:B97,95,93 Shirt E81,YR30 then lost track...
