Corrugated Cupid

Hello.  Welcome.  Today northern Norway is playing with a hurricane and we are getting the edge effects.  Windy, rainy, with occasional high speed hail storms.  Definitely a day to stay in and craft.  I've been working on my February pages for The Craft Barn Calender Challenge where this week the theme is the colour red and hearts.  I figured I was half way there since my calendar is heart shaped LOL.  

I decided to start with patterned paper again.  This is Making Memories Cherry Blossom Love Notes.  Thought it was kinda applicable.  

I added some Cheery Lynn Small Tea Rose die cuts to some of the flowers and also some flourishes cut using Cheery Lynn Celtic Fire Oval die.  I cut the cupid and arrow using a Sizzix die from corrugated card and added a wink of stella clear.  I used that on the roses as well.  Then I cut lots of tiny little white hearts using Fiskars Hearts border punch, stuck them together and added some red glitter glue for the body.  A butterfly for every rose.
