Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge 132

This time, our challenge is hosted by my team mate, Lorraine, and the theme is love. So it can be a valentine, or a card for a wedding or engagement - it's up to you so long as the theme is love.

I chose to make a valentine card for my husband, although naturally, I won't be signing it!


I've used a gorgeous lacy paper from Joanna Sheen's Ivory Cats CD - and I've got to say it was well worth the money I paid for the background papers alone! Normally when I buy a CD, I love the images and am disappointed with the background papers. It's the opposite this time. (Well, not really. The images are fine, but there are only so many people you can send cat images to.)

The front heart is made using a couple of Marianne dies, and the inside one uses a Sizzix die. I generated the sentiment in Photoshop Element. The flowers were made using a set of Sizzix Susan's Garden dies and were shaded using Pan Pastels.

The card is a bit fussier than I'd usually do for my husband, but I didn't want it to be completely plain.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar where anything goes,
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards where 'Love is in the Air',
Crafts 4 Eternity where the theme is 'With Love',
Fussy and Fancy where 'it's all about love',
Kitty Bee where the theme is Valentines/love,
Simply Create where they want valentines/hearts,
Sister Act where anything goes,
