Crazy 4 Challenges and Stampin for the Weekend Challenges

So nice to be with you again friends. I've been in a workshop the whole day and am absolutely bushed. I didn't think I would have the energy to make a card this evening, but after a quick nap after supper I managed to pull this little creation together for the Crazy 4 Challenges and Stampin' for the Weekend Challenges. Both are asking for a Valentine's themed card.  Why not pay them a visit and play along.  Their DT have created some stunning cards!
I absolutely adore this DP which I purchased the other day at The Scrapbook Shop in Durbanville, so I had to get some more. The base of my card is a brown bazzill cardstock. The gorgeous image which I am using for the first time is Gorjuss Girl. I coloured her in with my Copics and mounted her with foam pads onto a shimmery bronze paper. Further embellies are a lovely thin red satin ribbon, various hearts using my 2 heart cutters and the lovely rose I have had for ages in my stash!  I placed my new paper laced ribbon down the centre of my card and to finalise, made a bow and placed a pearl hat pin through it.

It really makes my day when there are comments to read... Thank you to my regular blog buddies that visit me.  To the newbies that visit, I hope you'll consider joining as a follower so that I can return the favour. And now I'm off to the land of Nod, sleep tight everyone, hugs Sharon x
