Love is in the air

This is my first DT card for Penny's Challenges, our theme there for the next 2 weeks is "Love is in the air" and we got some really nice digis from our sponsons to play with.



We're sponsored by:


 lili of the valley with a £10 voucher

and


 Little Miss Muffet Stamps with a $10 gift certificate.


As most crafter associate warm, "female" colours with love I decided to do something else instead. It's a "love"-card for my dad. He doesn't like red or pink... so I used blue and brown as you can see.



Oh, for all those who don't know German, the text means "for the best dad" & "Love you".


Stamp: "Armchair Bear" from LOTV
Sentiment: WordArt
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castel
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities
Punch: star border punch from Martha Stewart
Ribbon, stickles, buttons, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.



I am also entering the card in the following challenges:
