Challenge Wins

My Crafty Friends

Sunday 30 January 2011


Good evening all! It's been a very busy week for me, but I finally had some time to craft today. I have made my husband's Valentine's card and I'm afraid that I went a bit overboard with the whole love theme. But then again, the first Valentine as a married couple should be a little special, right? So I searched for the most pinkest en love'ish papers and embellishments in my stash and came up with this:

Pretty pink huh? Here's a picture from the inside:

The pictures are not as great as usual, because hubby takes them for me, but for obvious reasons he couldn't this time.

I've used a scalloped card from papercraft UK. Most of the other stuff I have no clue regarding maker or line, usually because my stash is a mess! I only remember buying the hearts on Ebay, don't you just love them? I've also put some stickles on the image's ribbon around the heart, don't know if you can see it very well though.

I'm thinking about making a matching gift bag for a nice bag of Maltesers. I'm such an angel ;)

I would like to submit this card to the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments Challenge (Sentiment with a love theme)
