Young Love... Crafting For All Seasons #20 Love is in the Air

Afternoon all.... I'm back today with a new challenge over at Crafting For All Seasons and our theme is 
Love is in the Air.  We have some fab sponsors and prizes this week to.. but first here is my little card...

Now it was supposed to be a coloured in image but I was so excited to use my new sewing machine that had literally just arrived, I completely forgot what I was doing and ended up sewing it and sticking it straight on... but I actually really like it... and I'm pretty pleased with my sewing for a very first attempt...

Anyhow now onto our amazing sponsors for this weeks challenge...
