Happy Valentine’s Day!

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone, I hope you’ve all been showered with love :)!
A card today for Just Magnolia Challenge and a theme of ‘Love’, Double Dutch where it’s ‘Be my Valentine’, Stamp with fun ‘Hearts’ and The Pink Elephant ‘Mushy, Gushy Valentine’.
I’ve stamped the ever so cute Ladybug Tilda and water coloured her with distress inks, cut her out with a nestabilities die, added lots of stickles, copic spica glitter pen and glossy accents to her spotty jacket. The background paper is also by Magnolia and I’ve faux stitched around the edges of it. There’s a border of white card with punched with the doily lace punch finished off and red dotted ribbon and to finish off I added the Magnolia ‘Loving Wishes’ sentiment which I cut in half after stamping and some clear gems.
Have a cosy evening and TFL.

wow over 240 entries and me starting a new job means I'm looking at everyone's cards, but only have time for a copy and pasted message. So sorry but what I've put is true for all our entries. Each and everyone is stunning in different ways. Thank you so much for entering our challenge at the Pink Elephant. Hope we'll see you next week too.

She's positively adorable Chris!
I do love the way you colour your images and backgrounds (I really must practice more with DIs!) and that ribbon is the perfect match for this sweet Tilda.

Had to laugh at your post Chris, as I was certainly not 'showered with love' yesterday and had the most vile day ever at work.
Anyway, your card as ever is superb with fantastic colouring and great design.
Hope to catch up with you next month at the Barn.
