My Little Valentine

009a

 

 

Our challenge this week  on A Spoonfull of Sugar is VALENTINE, cannot believe it just a few weeks away, not that I will be receiving any, my days of getting valentine are in the dim distant past Ahhhhh!!! no you don’t have to feel sorry for me :)

 

 

009

 

I am not happy with this card, but I don’t know why, after my bright cards I think it may be that it looks a bit insipid not sure!!I found these papers when I was trying to tidy up my BP drawers nothing on it to tell me who makes it though.  I like this Valentine Tilda even though her head is quite big again, the stamp behind the image is also from Magnolia, and I have distressed it with Spun Sugar DI.   

 

010

Wild Orchid Craft Flowers a usual and I have used lots of heart charms to add interest.  More Seam Binding and an awful lot of pearls finish the front of the card.

 

012

 

I have decorated the inside with the last of the paper and two more Magnolia Stamps.

 

009d  Copics used:

Flesh: E21, E00, E000, Hair, E71, E70, E40, Dress B01, B000, B0000, Hearts & Boots R81, RV000, RV0000

 

May try to take some better photos later if there is more good daylight.

Hugs Jacqui xx
