Aud Sentiments Challenge #21 Corny Valentine

Wow everyone, we had so many entries last fortnight and such a high standard we had real trouble picking the winner and top 3 - check out the Aud Sentiments Challenge blog to see if it was you.

Our challenge this fortnight is to use a CORNY VALENTINE SAYING get your thinking caps on.

We are being sponsored by Inktegrity who will be giving the winner a $10 gift voucher.
The DT were given a selection of images to use and I chose Mikey the Monkey who comes with several valentine type sentiments.

I used Promarkers to colour him and cut the image out with the scalloped spellbinder die cut. I matted it on to another scalloped border - I draw around the one I used to cut out the image so the border around is not too large. I have distressed both circles with Tea dye distress ink.

The buttons, flowers and border are from a Polka Doodles CD - the flowers have been distressed cut and crumpled for added texture. The sentiment is one of the ones you get with Mikey the Monkey.

Please visit the rest of the team for some more inspiration - their links are in my left sidebar.
