Valentine Cards


This is my second post for today. Scroll down for another sneak peek.

My first Valentine card was made using one of the new Teddy Bo digi images. I just love these images and this one is called Made With Love. He must really love her to wear that jumper, lol! The papers are BG Capella. They are such soft colours, these papers, with a slightly distressed look. I added to the look with distress ink. I used a die cut swirl and pearls rather than flowers so that this card could be used for a male or female.

Challenges:
Teddy Bo Anything goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts Love is in the air
Creatalicious Love (and use ribbon)
Delicious Doodles Use 3 colours (peach, cream and brown)
Incy Wincy Bears, bears, bears
Passion for Promarkers All you need is love
Papertake Ribbonsand pearls
I love Promarkers KISS (keep it sweet and simple)
Penny's Challenge Anything Goes
Sketch Saturday
Secret Crafter With love

The second is very vibrant and a complete contrast. The papers are Prima Fairy Flora. I used a MS deep edge corner punch and added pearls. These sweet mice are Penny Black of course. I decoupaged the flower and used my new inverted scallop circle Nesties (the same ones as in my candy). I used the border punch to match the corners on the horizontal paper strip.
Just a couple of challenges for this one though of course it would fit many of the above challenges too. I used the fab sketch at Friday Sketchers and would like to enter it into Penny Black at Allsorts All you need is love

I love the soft colours you have used with Teddy Bo and Teddy Bea. And think using the swirl and pearls was a lovely idea.

I also like your second card too but like Fairy D said Teddy Bo and Bea are my favourites.
