What is The Color of Love?

Oh shoot me now, I've been coming up with all kinds of sappy song titles for this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS photo! Not intentionally, but as you can see by my card's sentiment, Captain and Tennille won't get out of my head!  I was inspired by both the SPARKS challenge and CAS-ual Friday's challenge because it's all about love bridging the gap.  The various browns represent skin tones.  The card front is actually two separate pieces linked together by the sentiment panel (the off the edge part).  The colorful arrows (like the points of the crayons in the SPARKS photo) represent a forward movement of acceptance and appreciation for all God's creation.  The trickiest part of this card was to stamp the sentiment.  It's a mixture of words and letters from about five different stamp sets.  I'll list them below.

Here's the run down of the sentiment:
Love= Squeaky Clean, love machine
Will=   Squeaky Clean m from love machine  Cuteasaurus, good tri, Perpetual Bliss, Let the good times roll.  Keep= Perpetual Bliss, It's fun o'clock, My Peeps, how tweet of you, Perpetual Bliss, Let the good times roll (d for p).
Us= Smarty Pants, bus
Together= Alphadots
I cut the arrows on the Silhouette and free hand cut the heart.  Gems are from Recollections.






Now we move from symbolic to silly!



Okay, I admit, I was getting carried away when I put Glossy Accents on their noses.  I scribbled the lines connecting to the sentiment.  I used Party Posse, Spring Fling, the drop of paint is from Sugar Rush.  All papers were in my stash.
