For my Valentine...........

.....................and I don't think he has seen it!!!!!!
I bought this stamp a while ago and finally got a chance to use it for my hubby's valentine card -
Cupid at Work from Penny Black. I didn't think the Tilda cards I have made were appropriate for him somehow!!!
I have coloured cupid with watercolour crayons and put a glaze on the little hearts - hope you can see in this closeup..............

If you click on the image you should get a bigger version - and the sunshine seems to have washed it out a bit!!!!

I have used flower punches on corrugated card and a brad for the flowers. The flower border is an EK Success punch called  Garden Flower punched into red glitter card - took a while to get used to this punch but got there in the end. The embossed card is co'ordinations card and a Country Companion folder of hearts. The backing paper is from a Papermania set - and unbelievably I just pushed the wrong button and posted this halfway through aaaaaaaaaargh!!!!
I have added some flourishes from a Mariannes die cut and some bling gems from my stash.
Not too girly I hope!

So I need to get to the challenges so I can post again!!!

Hi hun,
I'm sure he will love it and I don't think it is too girly at all. Love the flower border punch and those little flowers.
