Contemplating Cupid

I somehow found the time to create this cute cupid valentine card.

I embossed the white wash core-dinations cream circle with a heart cuttlebug embossing folder and sanded it back to reveal the core.
I coloured the white paper lace doylie with candy apple glimmer mist.

Close up of cupid

I stamped and embossed this image in gold and carefully coloured in with copics carefully avoiding the edges. I also added some stickles on his wings.

Here is the closeup of the flower

I coloured the edges of this gardenia and leaves (which were white) with gold ink and gold stickles.
I also used one of my favourite trinket pins that I make and sell.

I followed the below sketch from sweet sketch wednesday challenge

Here is the recipe:
Stamp: V-0002 Cupid from hookedoncraft
Papers: from my stash and paper lace doylie from hookedoncraft
Ribbon: Bud and bow ribbon from hookedoncraft
Flower: Gardenia from hookedoncraft ebay store
White Leaves made gold with ink: from hookedoncraft
Decorative Trinket pin: My etsy store

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
