Well I must have got totally confused going away for the weekend because yesterday saw the beginning of a brand new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and guess who thought it wasn't until today? So without further ado here is my card for our new challenge which is .............. "LOVE"

The sponsor this week is:

and the lucky winner will receive a choice of five digi images from Fairy Dust Crafts .  If you pop over to Lexi's you can see what my talented team mates have come up with.

I have used the cute Valentine's Bear which is available here from Fairy Dust Crafts. He is coloured with Copics.  I embossed the pearl card behind him and used an X cut die for the border.  The image has been cut out with a Nestie and matted on a heart Nestie.  I used a bit of spun sugar DI around the image.  The paper is Echo Park called Yours Truly.  The little pearl hearts, ribbon slider and corner embellishment are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I have added the gems to the ribbon slider and I heat embossed the corner embellishment so it would match the card more.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Just us Girls - Sketch
Crafty Boots - Valentines
Paper Makeup Stamps - Pink and Grey
Lollipop Crafts - Valentine's Card
Stamp with Fun - Love
The Pink Elephant - Use Pink
Victorine Stamps - Love/Valentines
Dream Valley - Valentine
Di's Digi Designs - Valentine
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Hearts

Well that's it for me today, thanks for looking and take care xx
