Double challenge Valentine's card!

This is the Valentine's card that have made for my bf. I have used the sketch from papertake weekly's challenge (although I have rotated the sketch, I hope you don't mind) and I am also entering it into Cute Card Thursday's challenge which is to make a Valentine's themed card!

The image was kindly sent to me by one of my friends on the do crafts forum. My bf loved this image when he saw it so I though it was perfect for his Valentine's card. I have coloured it in with my whispers pens and distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distress inks. I cut the scalloped frame myself with my SU scalloped edge punch, so please excuse the uneven scallops at the corners! My next nestie purchases are the rectangular one's (I have the circle, oval and square, typically I needed the rectangles for this image!). The papers are from Basic Grey Archaic pad. Sentiments are from SU best yet set and Hero Arts. The felt hearts were given to me by my mum. They came on a ribbon of hearts. I have simply cut the ribbon sections off to make individual hearts. The centers are paper punched hearts, distressed with my inks and glossy accents added to them.

I hope he likes it!

I had a very productive day yesterday. I made 5 cards as well as doing 600 words on my essay. So I have plenty of cards to show you in the forthcoming week or so! Hope you are all having a good weekend.

Hugs, Vicky x
