Today, I've made a card featuring one of the Lili of the Valley bears being very romantic and holding a rose whilst stood on a little balcony - what a Romeo!
I coloured him in Promarkers and layered him up on some Hot Off The Press papers. I also made a little lacy background feature using a Papermania die which I then cut out the frilly corners using a Marianne die - I thought it gave a romantic feel to the card. Finally I finished it off with a couple of gems and pearly Card Candy. I decorated the inside with matching patterned paper and a heart shaped die cut area punched with my hole punch to write your message. At Christmas I'd received a lovely big card in a gorgeous pinky red envelope so I've been very thrifty and used that envelope to make the bottom mats on this card. How is that for New Year recycling! ha! ha!
I thought this card would be great for the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge which this week is 'New' so this would be ideal for a 'New ' romance and I'd also like to enter it into the Cardmaking and Papercraft challenge to make a Valentine's Card and on the Trip Down Memory Lane blog where the challenge is the letter 'P' for both 'Pink' and 'Polka Dots'.
Thanks for looking and will be back shortly with some more creations!
