Hello and good morning on this bitterly cold and icy day.  We still have snow here and it is awful trying to walk outside, just terrible conditions, so I hope that you are all safe and well and keeping warm, and if you have had to venture out to go to work etc, I hope that you all have safe journey's too.

My card today is for Valentines Day and I would like to enter it into the following challenges.

Stampin Royalty.  Challenge #264.  LOVE/VALENTINES.

Aud Sentiments.  Challenge #124.  VALENTINE or LOVE SENTIMENT.

C.R.A.F.T.  Challenge #296.  VALENTINES DAY/LOVE.

Tuesday Throwdown.  Challenge #229.  FACETS for CRAFTING.

Pennys Challenges.  Challenge #212.  ANYTHING GOES.

4 Crafty Chicks.  Challenge #231.  ANYTHING GOES.

I have used a SCALLOPED EDGE CARD for the base card and onto that I have put a HUNKYDORY HEARTS EMBOSSED CARD which has then been edged with a 
SILVER DECORATIVE BORDER to highlight and add definition too.

I then made a panel using a gorgeous textured paper from the ~First Edition ROSE GARDEN
paper pad. The strip was mounted onto plain pink card and then edged with the same border.
I added a WHITE FILIGREE HEART DOILY at an angle overlapping the border, and in the centre I added a co-ordinating DUSKY PINK PAPER ROSE. For the foliage, I used the Marianne Creatable SWIRL die. At the top of the heart I placed a PINK SATIN BOW and around the edge of the HEART I placed PINK GEMSTONES for added texture.
Finally, my sentiment reads "I LOVE YOU".

Thank you very much for coming to visit. I hope you stay safe and warm. Please take care.
Love Sandra xxx
