I'm still unable to post live links for my challenges, apologies to all the blogs that I'm using

I'm entering this card into 5 challenges

Ready-Teddy-Go February challenge, In Stitches. To use real or faux stitching

I Love ProMarkers #103 to use Letraset pens and Love is in the air

Whimsy Stamps challenge #25, Love themed

The Pink Elephant #135, photo inspiration

Squigglefly #6, to have a heart

I knew that if I kept this cardstock I'd eventually have a reason to use it lol I'm really pleased with this card

Not a red rose for Valentine's Day but who says that you can't have a sunflower?

I love this sunflower image, plus I was able to make good use of my Promarkers fine tips in the centre of the flower

I edged all the papers and cardstock with a Distress ink pad

What would I do without these sentiment stamps?

I think that I'm happiest with just plain matting and layering in my card making but I must start using the yards and yards of ribbon and lace that I have in one of my boxes!

Materials used

LOTV pre-printed image that was a magazine freebie
ProMarker pens and fine tips
BP from a QVC pack a few years ago
Woodware trimmer and scallop blade
Distress Ink pad, tumbled glass
Woodware Tiny Phrases stamps
Tanda Stitchers set 1 mini
