Pink Valentine

Hey! what a shock .. .. no coloured image on my card for Cute Card Thursday's challenge this week for a pink Valentine! Every time I started to colour something it ended up blue .. .. so I gave up and created this pink card just with die cuts and stamps instead. The base is a white scallop card and the paper is more of the Nitwits freebie matted with pink cardstock. I've added a length of ribbon and a piece of my precious lace, then lots of pearls. The heart is a Nellie's Choice die whilst the flowers and swirl are from Marianne - little bits from LR0112, LRO122 & LRO157. I've stamped the text with Coral Brilliance pearlescent ink and then added a couple more stamps inside, text and heart from Elusive Images who are sadly no more.

In the end I quite liked the way this one turned out, and so did my son who's helped himself to it! A few more Valentine/love challenges I can link up to: The One Stop Craft, Let's Ink It Up, Everybody Art, For Fun, and Oldie But a Goodie with a challenge to use lace.

  5. How delightful of your Son - what a compliment, I really didn't think that species of card buyer would go for this which I think is quite sutnning. Those pearls are gorgeous around the edge of the heart & match the heart shaped ones beautifully as well as highlighting the texture of the lace.
