Card for Try it on Tuesday

Good morning peeps
It's a new week and a new challenge over at Try it on Tuesday with the theme of True Love. It's card week so we are looking forward to seeing your cards with the theme. (just in time for Valentines day!)
This is my card for this week
I used a Tim Holtz sentiment as my starting point and added more words using small alphabet stamps as a reminder that in the midst of the storms of life we don't dance alone if we are in a loving relationship. I coloured this with fired brick and stormy sky distress ink and stamped around the edges.
I coloured the main card with fired brick distress ink and stamps used are from Spring sprung (Tim Holtz)
I embossed and painted an acetate tag with paint and mounted it onto a black tag and layered the main piece on top of it. I cut and embossed a couple of small butterflies and a heart out of silver card and aged with black paint before fixing in place as seen.

There's plenty more inspiration over on the Try it on Tuesday blog so I hope to see you there.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
