A Monochromatic Valentine

Hi Susan here....

Well can you believe its Friday again....where has this week gone??? The Stamping Bazaar has started a new challenge today and the theme is 'Anything Goes' a really easy one that you can let your imagination and inspiration soar. For full details of the challenge and to see some amazing work from the design team please call across to The Stamping Bazaar Challenge Blog and join in the fun with us. There are some fantastic prizes to be won.

Now for my card....

I have used backing papers from my stash and machine stitched all the edges then distressed. My flowers are from Hobby Craft and Wild Orchid Crafts. My ribbon and gems are from as usual our local market.

Oh well I just had to use 'Marvin with Daisies' again, I love this little guy, he has been designed by Marina Neira and is available from The Stamping Bazaar Store as part of a special priced set, or as a single digi image. I have used black lead pencils to colour him, I love this effect.

My tickets are from Raindrop Echo Designs and the word sentiments are rubber stamps from Tickled Pink Stamps.

Thank you for looking and for all your wonderful comments.
Love Susan
