Be My Valentine with the Emerald Faerie Garden Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the next challenge at the 

The theme this time around is

Be My Valentine

I have changed the colour to suit the person that this card is going to as it is a colour favourite for her

So here is my design team inspirational piece
A Valentine's Card

Made with purple mirror card wow what bling!!!
The base layer and contrast is the purple mirror card, with papers from the Bloomsbury Pad which I purchased at Grimsby Crafts.  The frame around the image is a Cheery Lynn, yep a new addition to my craft stash. Matt very kindly poked out all the cut out bits bless him, love ya hun!!  The sentiment is sat on a nestie tag with some more of the ribbon I won threaded through it.  I have used spun sugar distress ink and a scroll stamp to edge the sentiment.

Here is a close up of the image 
the image is called
Willy & Mia
and can be purchased 
The image is coloured in copics as always

Now here is a slight different angle, to hopefully show you that I have decoupaged the wings and her skirt, but they are not stuck on flat decoupage but angled from the body, hope you can see it
It allows the image to be under the frame but the decoupage to be on top of the frame.

I would like to Thank all of my wonderful visitors, who take the time to leave such inspirational and kind comments on my work, which allows me to hop on over to visit you all in return.
