Well, I suppose it was inevitable that I'd have to make a lovey dovey card at some stage.  Almost as bad as Christmas cards I think, pmsl.  Anyway, the theme at I ♥ PROMARKERS this week (#153) is love and our fabulous sponsor is MARIANNE DESIGN.  I was going to use Mo's freebie (the love thief) but as I figured there'd be shed loads of them floating around, I went for something completely different.  This is very CAS for me, but I actually quite like it.

I cut the Marianne die twice, one black one white and layered them atop a black mat, border cut with a Martha Stewart punch.  It's all mounted onto a white card base. The stamp is an old wood mounted one I've had for years.  I cut each letter square out and mounted them with 3D sticky dots.  There's a minimal amount of Promarker colouring on this and I applied diamond glaze to the letters and that, as they say, is that!
