Love Is In The Air and Fluttering By

Second post today.
This card just evolved as I added elements from several challenges.  The starting point was the sketch from Crafty Catz shown below but I flipped the design. Then I stirred in some hearts, pearls, things with wings, paper piercing, scraps and a digital image. I used this lovely digi from Meljens "Flutterby Fairy" who looks like she is flying around and spreading love in the air.  I colored it with Copics and cut it out with  a Spellbinder Scalloped Hearts die. I pierced the edge of the heart and placed on a heart cut mat.  Using a ribbon and scrap of PP, I assembled the card. Added a small heart with some tear drop pearls ( as a heart) and more pearls on the image. Added some highlights with Sakura Clear Star pen. Lot of heart in this card. Finished with "Love" sentiment.

Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge: Sketch shown below
City Crafter: I "Heart" You theme
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Things with wings.
Tuesday Throwdown: Challenge is pearls.
Simon Says: Sing it-use music or film title as inspiration. This card just sang out "Love is in the Air"
Flutter By Wednesday: Open ..used a fairy on a butterfly.
Meljens Designs Challenge: Use Paper Piercing. Mine is on the heart and swirl designs.

Other Supplies:
Stamps: Meljens Digi and PSX Sentiment.
Ink: SU Bordering Blue and Copics
Paper and Ribbon: All from stash and scraps
Pearls from Annabelle Stamps
