Dream Valley Challenge 25 - Valentine

Happy Sunday to you all!  It's time for another challenge at Dream Valley and the them this fortnight is Valentine.  Now, I must admit that hubby and I don't really "do" the Valentine's Day thing, so I opted for making a card that could be used for Valentine's Day or an anniversary. 

I have used my wonderful Nestie Scalloped Circle and Circle dies and my fabulous new Sizzix Framelits Hearts.  I've also used the Clockworks embossing folder and Stickles for a bit of texture and bling.  And I even came across some tiny buttons and black sticky dots that I thought would be perfect.  The photograph doesn't really show it, but I've pleated and sewn the ribbon on the right of the card.

We are really lucky to have TWO sponsors this time: One Stop Card Crafts AND Joanna Sheen

I would also like to enter the following challenges:
Sarah Hurley - Love is all Around
The Paper Shelter - Love is in the Air
Truly Scrumptious - Love and Hearts
Anything Goes - To the One I Love
Crafty Purple Frog - Valentine's Day / Show Us Some Love

Little Red Wagon - Valentines Day or Love
