Love in Pink

I wonder....... if I leave enough of these Valentines cards lying around the house, do you think my hubby might even remember this year? (Huge guffaw...not a hope! Bless him - and I wouldn't have him any other way.)

There's a lot of romance in the air out here in blog land this week, isn't there? Well, it is that time of year after all. I'm still carrying on the love/romance theme with my card today and I'm back to my glitzy, sparkly and 'fussy' style. Hmmm, I may be flipping between the fussy and the clean and simple for a little while longer yet. This one is most definitely a girl's card (oooh! PINK!), but it could also be used as a wedding or anniversary card.

It's the Pixie Cottage challenge day today and the themes are a sketch and/or ribbons (oh yes! we all love our ribbons, don't we?) I've used both in this card.
I love this little stamp (May I Have This Dance - by ArTish); it looks fab coloured but I kept colour to the minimum this time around - just a few stickles for a glitzy shine.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Let's see some love
If the shoe Fits - Get Your Pink On!
My Time To Craft - Hearts and Flowers
Ooh La La - For Someone Special
Papertake Weekly - Have a Heart
Sew Many Cards - Anything Goes
Stamps R Us - Valentine/love
The Pink Elephant - Be My Valentine
Two Sisters - The World is our Oyster (pearls)

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you will head over to the challenge blog to see how the talented DT have got creative with their ribbons this week; lots of inspiration for everyone.
Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

Sharon, this is a fab card. I love the heart shape for the image and the colouring, especially around the edge. The pleated ribbon is beautiful, I keep meaning to have a go at that myself. I worry too about having too many valentines cards around the house that hubby may think that I'm making them for sending them to sweethearts!! Thanks for playing along with our pearl themed challenge at 2 sisters, hope you join us again next week with another wonderful creation. Annette xx
