Sweet Love

Welcome to the 2nd Challenge at Make it Colourful and this week's challenge is to use red!
I made this card using an Elisabeth Bell stamp Sweet Love from Belles 'n Whistles and behind it Lovers Pavilion from Make It Crafty. I used lots of reds and pinks to accent this Valentines card.

Here's another view of the gorgeous pavilion which was so much fun to color. This was my second time working on the image and I think it turned out so much better. I like the blue sky without the clouds and the white pavilion is more romantic with this card.

Did you know? There are about 2,500 species of cicada around the world and they exist on all continents except Antarctica. Some cicadas produce sounds up to 120 dB "at close range", among the loudest of all insect-produced sounds. The name is a direct derivation of the Latin cicada, meaning "buzzer". They live underground as nymphs for most of their lives and emerge only when adults, which in some species is every 13 or 17 years.
