with all my love

February is the month of love, and this is my contribution to the myriad of love themed creations. A card for my darling hubby
~ Ü ~

 Using the sketch from Kaboodle Doodles with a love script inspiration from Make My Monday, colours from Raise the Bar and a recipe from Simon Says Stamp & Show

The main image is a new stamp from Papermania. I've paired it with the sentiment, also from Papermania. The large heart die cut is from Sizzix, butterfly from Cheery Lynn, and the embossing folder is from CB. I've incorporated the torn corrugated board as a textural element, and lace for some shabby chic goodness! The background is stamped repeatedly with a medallion stamp from Viva decor, and everything given the distress ink treatment - walnut stain, vintage photo & fired brick

The flowers are from SB, with one button centre. Pearls are paper pen.

 There are tons of love/heart/valentine themed challenges and several others that this card fits. I'm sure there are more that I could enter but I think I'll cap the night at *just* these

Thanks for stopping by!
