Hearts, flowers and chocolate!

All you need for valentine's day! Ok so I know pink isn't the most traditional colour for a male card but I really like it and I hope my other half does too!

The image and sentiment are from Lili of the Valley - I just had to have them as soon as I saw them! They are coloured with my promarkers and a little glitter glue. The papers are Henbury Lane and I've sanded the edges with a sanding block to soften the look a little and give the pink mist around the edges :-) The flowers are a mix of some I got from Debs and some I bought from the NEC - they're covered in glitter, I don't know how none of my pictures manage to show it! The ribbons and pearls are from my stash.

I've added some little heart shaped gems to the "o"s in the sentiment:

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Valentine's/Love
Whoopsi Daisy - Any shape but square
Cards for Men - Valentine's/Love
PaperPlay - Stamp it out
The Secret Crafter - Valentine

I also want to thank the fabulous Mags and Donna for giving me this lovely award:

I've received this award once before so I've already followed all the rules here but I really wanted to say a massive thankyou for thinking of me :-) I'm honoured!

Catch up again soon!
Love 'n' hugs,
