Softpencil Preview: Two Cute Musicians

Here are Michu and Ratiny serenading you! Have you ever been serenaded? I was.. just recently, for the very first time in my life! Hubby and I, DSs, and DDIL to be, had dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant to celebrate my birthday last weekend. DS called the restaurant and told them that it was my birthday. At the end of the meal I was presented with a huge slice of chocolate ganache cake with hot fudge sauce, whipped cream, and a lit candle on top. Then the waiter sang happy birthday to me in "Italian"! How beautiful "Happy Birthday" sounds when sung in another language!
Any way, back to my posting... Michu and Ratiny would look just perfect on a Valentine card! This week's challenge is a recipe! Sorry, it's not for chocolate ganache cake with fudge sauce! It's a 1, 2, 3 Challenge! Choose any combination of elements for your card. I chose 1 ribbon, 2 DP, and 3 buttons. Which three will you choose? I found the "All You Need is Love" stamp in the Dollar bin at Michael's. It's sung by my favorite singing group (when I was growing up) and oddly enough, it's my youngest son's favorite group too! Do you know who sang it? The *answer will be at the end of my post.
I hope you'll join us in this week's Challenge #18 and post your lovely creation at Paper Craft Planet!Elizabeth has some FREEBIES  posted there as well. Play along and you could win a $10 voucher to spend at Softpencil.  Check out Elizabeth's shop! She has some new "Oh So Cute!" images with Sentiments! Just perfect for Valentine's Day! Elizabeth is also a sponser for this week's "Fab "n Funky" Challenge #9, so you have another chance to win some of her adorable images!
