One Stitch at a Time Challenge 199

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our theme is 'with love'. So, use your imagination and come up with some loving thoughts for someone!

Our sponsor this week is:

and the winner will get $9 to spend in the shop. The only problem they'll have is limiting themselves to $9 - they're bound to want more!

I used an image from Stitchy Bear called Quilted Love. I decided it would make a perfect Valentine card for my husband, and it will, of course, be unsigned.

I designed the paper and added the text (and red hearts) in Photoshop Elements. I colorued the rest of the image with Promarkers, adding a shadow with Pan Pastels. The ribbon is from my stash, and the die cut is one I bought ages ago. I think it's a X-Cut die which has probably been discontinued. It's actually a bit big for an embellishment for the card sizes I usually use, but I thought it worked well with this image. Since it's for my husband, I've kept it fairly simple.

I hope you can join us this week.

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

Crafting from the Heart where they want 'anything goes/red',
Digi Makeover where anything goes,
Whoopsie Daisy where the theme is 'valentines',
Crafty Sentiments where 'Love is in the Air',
Everybody Art where the theme is 'valentines',
Flourishes where they have a joint theme of Red and Love,
Papertake Weekly where anything goes,
Milk Coffee where the theme is love/valentines,
Delightful Challenges where anything goes,
Sunflowerfield Designs where the theme is Valentines Day/Hearts.
