Whiff of Joy Valentines Card Challenge

This week's challenge on Whiff of Joy is to make a Valentines card so I dug out the heart template that I made yonks ago and did another heart shaped card.

I love this image and think she is just perfect for a Valentines card. I went with the traditional reds and golds (cos I'm an old fogey lol). I don't know why the ribbon looks so orange in the pic, IRL it's almost the same colour as the gold card that I used - bizarre.

I made the flower by punching out flower with the Retro Flower punch and then added a layer of organza pull-flowers. I added a rose to the center for a bit of colour.

I've not decorated the inside of this card yet - ran out of time ... again *roll eyes* but will get round to it - I ain't breaking the only resolution I have ever made quite so early in the year lol.

Recipe

Melinda blowing kisses by Whiff of Joy
has been coloured with distress inks and Twinkling H2O's.
The rose paper is by Paper Pizzazz and it's a sheet I have had for about 4 years.
The sentiment is from Circle of Friends set by Stampin Up.

Please pop across to the other DT's blogs and drool over their fabulous creations

I received this award from Akkina, thanks so much sweetie, I will pass it on as soon as I can

hanks for looking,
