Love is all around you

Good evening fellow bloggers
Today I've made a Valentine's /Love card.

I also made another origami flower.  Tutorial here: Origami flower tutorial

Oh I do love Valentine's and I can always remember when I was at high school and I got a massive Valentine's card delivered to my door, I was just so pleased and excited lol 

I used an A4 piece of card and turned it into a larger card by adding a small piece of card into the length and scoring in the middle.

 I have used a good majority of most of my magnolia lane collection dies and cut pieces of the damask frame to turn them into corner pieces.  The image is of course my old favourite flowers faeries, stamped and coloured with Promarkers.  I fussy cut it and then placed onto the card. 

The sentiment is also from magnolia dies which I think just fits the theme to the card. The card stock is from hunkydory and matting papers from my stash.   Ribbon, Tiny hearts, lace and vellum are all my old crafty stash from years ago.

I hope you like the card , took me a few nights to do due to a bad shoulder but it didn't stop me lol

I have been accepted onto two DT teams which im chuffed about, will let you know in due course who they are

Thank you all so much for looking, commenting and just being you
Much love
