Mojo Recipe for a Love Story!

Hey, bet that got you guessing right??? LOL
Well the reasoning behind the title - Recipe Challenge over at There's Magic in the Air, I used the sketch at Mojo Monday and I used the Movie Love Story as my inspiration and that is the challenge over at Paperplay Challenges.
So although there are only two days left to enter - here's the sketch at Mojo Monday:

And this is the card I made using their sketch:

The Challenge at Paperplay as I said is use a Movie/Book title as your inspiration - I thought of love story when I saw this digi image (tenuous I know but hey it's there!!).  And then the Recipe Challenge over at There's Magic in the Air.  The recipe is as follows: 1 tag (under the gold ribbon) 2 textures: (Flock DP for the circles and Liquid Pearls for the icing on the cake), 3 patterned papers (the three circles are all different patterns from the Laura Ashley Flock Effects paper pack), 4 pieces of ribbon (white and dark red at the top, burgundy across the middle and gold for the bow), sprinkle with 5 brads or buttons (5 deep red brads on the image) there was also the option to use one piece of cardstock of a different colour to your base card (my base card was shiny pink and I used a piece of burgundy card above it)  I used metallic pencils to colour the rest of the image and a very dark pink chalk around the edges of the piece of card the image was on. 

So there you have it - a Mojo Recipe for a Love Story!!
