Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Folks, I have a project to share with you today that I have made for a new challenge blog which is starting today. I am lucky enough to have been chosen to be on the Design Team. The blog is Sincerely Yours Creations
and they are a fortnightly challenge blog with a Facebook page as well. They have some great sponsors providing fabulous prizes so it is really worth entering the challenges to grab a chance of winning something.
The theme for this fortnight's challenge is Valentine/Love, and my card reflects that with my own take on the subject. I have used an image from our sponsor Delicious Doodles called 'Rosalee', and coloured her with Polychromos pencils. I then set her on a Nestie shape inked and stamped with a large crackle stamp. My backing paper is a digital download from Pink Petticoat called 'French Script' and comes in a huge variety of colours, but I went for a simple cream and dark brown in this instance. I stamped and embossed a couple of ornate corners from Inkylicious on the background, and an Eiffel Tower image from Waltzing Mouse stamps. (The sentiment is from the same stamp plate). I coloured some handmade paper using Distress re-inkers using two colours to get the shade that I wanted, then made some rolled roses. The die cut swirl is from Die-namics.

The rest of the Design Team have been busy making some fabulous samples, so please hop over and take a look. Why not enter the challenge and see if you can win a prize? You can make whatever you like using any medium, and we would love to see what you come up with.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Congratulations. This looks super with the clean black, white & red background allowing the image to really shine in colour. The crackle background for her works beautifully in those muted browns too.
