Midweek Magnolia - Valentine's Challenge

It's Valentine's over at Midweek Magnolia this week and here is my design!! 

My Devil Tilda is so old and I must admit it's the first time I have actually coloured her but I think she looks perfect especially on my new Love Envelope.
As always she is coloured in with Pro Markers and added glamour dust to her wings.
Distressed all the edges of my papers and on the image stamped the love corner around the edges just so you can see.  Added some Angel Wings on each side which is also a DooHickey.
Used Magnolia papers and on the back one I have also inked the Valentines postmark!!
As always I have used my delicious Cheery Lynn Hearts die inked and edged with stickles.
More hearts and a perfect Magnolia sentiment.
Used my lattice die also from Cheery Lynn, lace from stash and the heart border punch is Martha Stewart.
Loving these beaded sprigs and pink poppies all from Live and Love Crafts I had a lovely delivery of goodies this week thanks Sandy you really do source the most beautiful embellishments for us.
Very arty shot!!!

Happy Birthday with Forever Friends x

Another "Forever Friends" commissioned card for my friend Kerry!!

Been searching for some new stamps to use for her cards as all she ever wants is these cute Bear's but then who can blame her they so look lovely and so easy to colour!
Her request was for a Special Friend and of course one of these cuties.  As always I have coloured in with my Pro Markers then inked around the image with distress inks then added spots of Viva Pearls.
Added these lovely flowers from my stash and of course I have used my new DooHickey fern die for the leaves.
Fabulous pleated ribbon down the side with a bow.
The sentiments are also from the "Forever Friend's" range and just the perfect finishing touch.
Check out these papers from First Edition called "Love Letter's" which you can purchase from Natalie and Amy's Craft shop here!
Added papers all around the card and then to finish cut out a heart from Cheery Lynn and added
the Birthday Sentiment.
Love it!!
