My Last Commissioned Valentine's Day Card

Here is my last commissioned Valentine's Day card.  I was asked by a customer for a Valentine's day card for her very special fiance.

This time I used an image from My Craft Studio Klever Construction Framed Flowers CD.  The image was originally pinks/reds/greens but I changed to shades of blue.  I used various different elements on the CD to make the sentiment mount on the front.  I printed off four lots of the image so that I could do quite a bit of decoupage.  I've added Stickles to the centre of the flower to add a bit of sparkle.  The card is then finished off with matting/layering of the personalised insert, seam binding and a metal love heart with jump rings.

I hope the customer likes it.  This card fits the following challenges:

Hi Kym, just thought I'd let you know about my visit to hospital. They are sending me for a scope and MRI as not sure if the gallstone is causing all my pain. So more waiting;( Hope you are managing your pain.
