Papertake Weekly & Poppicraft Competition

I decided to make a card for both this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge and Michelle's competition over on Poppicrafts.

Poppicrafts January competition is very simple, "Make a valentines Day card using only these 3 colours - BLACK, RED and WHITE." The challenge over on Papertake Weekly is 'Roses are Red..' is to use red on your card! Any shade or shades of red that you like from bright pillar box to deep burgandy!!

I stamped You're a Treasure from Penny Black and coloured using my Marvy Le Plume pens. This was then mounted onto red card and a heart jewel added to each corner and just above the hedgies. I also mounted up a Happy Valentine's Day onto red card, this is an A Muse Art stamp. Black and white swirl paper from Pink Petticoat was added down the left hand side and I also tied some red chiffon ribbon down the left hand side. The image and message were then added to the right hand side of the card.
