All you need is love....

Hello all!
It's been a while since I coloured up a Saturated Canary digi so I thought I would have a go at the latest SC challenge - 'inspired by a song'.  Have you seen the completely stunning DT examples over there? I keep on pinning them for inspiration!
        Now maybe it's because Valentine's Day is fast approaching but the song that has been stuck in my head for a few days now is "Love Me Tender".  I've been an Elvis fan ever since I was a child - used to love watching all his films :)  With that in mind, I came up with this card -


   The image is 'Honey' and was of course, coloured with Copics - the fancy card shape was cut using my Cameo (I contrasted the lilac with a plain Kraft inside) and I decorated it simply with some paper roses, adhesive pearls, a tiny bow and a Tim Holtz ticket.  I'm still keeping it simple even though this one does have a few decorative touches!
                     As well as the SC challenge , I would like to enter the challenges at avenue 613 , Dream Valley , Glitter n Sparkle , One Stitch at a Time .
          

Thanks for stopping by!
