ABC Challenge I is for.... In Pairs

Morning all!
Well it's that time again, another fabulous challenge over at ABC. This time we are up to the letter 'I' so we want to see things 'In Pairs'. Immediately I thought of couples and as we are nearing Valentines day I thought I'd dig out the super sweet Kissing Edwin and Shy Tilda as they make such a lovely pair.

I went for a shabby chic look with kitsch DP's and plenty of distressing. The gorgeous hearts are from an MS punch and the swirls are Marrianne D. Everything was edged with Pumice Stone DI then I added faux stitching and stardust stickles for detail. The cloud effect background was created with a handmade card cloud template and blue chalk.
