Love is in the air!

It would be difficult to miss the fact that it's almost Valentine's Day!! This month's theme at Crafty Calendar Challenges is "Love" and can include Valentine projects so this is my DT card featuring Together on the Wall which is one of my newest digi images available from A Passion for Stamps.

We have several new Dt members this month so there are lots of beautiful cards for you to look at ... and this month's prize is a £15.00 gift voucher from Squiggle Stamps!

It's another one of those cards which I made over a couple of days, adding a little bit here and there until I thought it was finished.It started with the image and then I couldn't resist my new Maroon Promarker so I got some matching paper which I embossed with the Hearts Cuttlebug embossing folder and made matching flowers.I threaded some fine gossamer ribbon through the heart punched border too but it doesn't show up too well in the photo.
Because there are so many challenges with the same theme this week I've beeen able to enter quite a few...!
