Non-traditional Valentine's Day Card

The challenge at Passion for Promarkers this week of the colour combo of Pastel Green and Blossom has lead me to the design of this card.  I haven't used the Pastel Green much as I don't like green but on using this it's more turquoise and therefore should get more life in the future.  Blossom though feels she's "over worked and under paid" as I do use this one a lot - all I will say is why can't all faces, arms, legs be coloured in blossom - too bright I know but it is lovely!!!  The backing papers I was given and it included a sheet of little embellishment so I've put on two sentiment mounts and cut out the flower.

This card fits the following challenges:

Dutch Dare Challenge - Summer in winter
Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge - Valentine's
Raise the Bar Challenge - Use something old - I have a large collection of peel-offs - a lot I've been given by blogging friends - but the With Love sentiment I've had since I started making cards 4 years ago
Crafty Cardmakers - Hearts and romance
Passion for Promarkers - Blossom and Pastel Green
Cute Card Thursday - Blooming gorgeous
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Hearts
Saturday Challenge - Hearts
Just us Girls - Wildcard
Lexi's Creations - Valentine's.
