Crafts4Eternity recipe#20

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to all you romantics, young and old, hope you all have a day that is LOVEly in every way. Me, well I will be doing the usual, chores, ironing and crafting lol, well it is what I LOVE lol. This week over at Crafts4Eternity Michele has another lovely sketch and recipe for you all to have a go at and of course a nice little goodie bag up for grabs. Hope you get a bit of crafting done today and get time to join our challenge.
This week I used the sketch to make a card for my son's wife for valentines day. The sketch is a lovely one and the recipe is;
Follow the Sketch
Include Chipboard
Use Polkadots
I used polka dots and heart digi papers, the image is of course magnolia, coloured with distress inks. My chipboard is the letters which were originally white so I coloured them and topped up the glitter on them. I embossed white card with heart folder and cut and embossed a heart with polka dot folder. I then finished it off with a few red flowers and liquid pearls. Be sure and pop over the C4E and check out the inspiration by the Dt girls and guest DT Sandra. We also have one of the new DT members joining us this week, the lovely Keeley, pop over and give her some love.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
1. Just Magnolia - LOVE
2. Daring Cardmakers - HAVE A HEART
3. Polkadoodles - HEARTS AND FLOWERS
4. Fussy and Fancy - RAZZLE DAZZLE
5. Humble Pie Stamps - USE DIES
6. Allsorts - 3 (chipboards)2 (images) 1 (heart shape)

Hi Pinky

I think you could well persuade me I do like Tila and Edwin after all. I have always avoided them - it's the fact thing you see, but what you do with them is lovely and this one just gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts.
