Let's Ink It Up Challenge # 9 Romance/Valentine

It is with some sadness I have to say that my term at Let's Ink It Up has come to an end. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time there and working with such a talented and inspiring team. Thank you to Suzanne for giving me the chance.
I would also like to thank everyone who played in our last challenge. The standard was amazing and the team found it very hard to pick our top 5. I look forward to seeing you inking up your rubber for our next challenge ...............

We have two sponsors for this challenge - Whiff of Joy.

They have given the prize of Willow with Champagne shown below,

who have provided a prize package of a set of three markers a pack of A6 Xpress It card and a Copic swatch book.

So here is the card I made,............

.......................... thank you Dawn for the image I used. She is coloured with watercolour crayons and the heart has been glazed. I have stamped and embossed the hearts in glitter black and red. The sentiments was embossed in black - I think it is an Anita's one.

Hi Ali,
Gorgeous card hun, love how you have coloured the image. You are really enjoying your embossing at the moment aren't you? It is a shame we can't be on the LIIU DT together - I was looking forward to working with you on there. Never mind we still have DCD in common. Thanks for sharing your card with us at our Lots of Hearts challenge at Totally Tilda this time. Good luck.
