Love Is In The Air!

Ready for another challenge?
All Dressed Up is having another fabulous challenge.
The theme for this great challenge is Stitching -Real of Faux.
Ok, so I'm not the best with stitching, but I did have fun with this one.
I got to use this fabulous All Dressed Up image "Love Is In The Air".
Along with the "Love Is In The Air" stamp I used, I added
2 hearts from the "I Love To Dance" stamp.
I used some really cute paper from Echo Park's
 "A Perfect Summer" 6x6 stack.
These are some of my favorite colors.
But truthfully, I really love ALL colors!
I added some of my favorite lace and some pretty glittery purple ribbon.
And of course, I added some gorgeous white and purple flowers.
The finishing touch was the faux stitching. 
I wanted to use the same stitching design that was on the hot air balloon.
However, I wanted to make the stitching bigger to draw attention
and be more like a frame for the hot air balloons.
I hope that will join us over at All Dressed Up stamps for this great challenge.
It'll be a lot of fun!
