The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - 26 January 2012

Well we had a lovely array of entries for the last challenge at the Crafty Purple Frog and we also had a good number of people requesting to join the Design Team.  I am sure Amy will be in touch very soon about that.  

It's time for another challenge at the Crafty Purple Frog and I am your official host and I have chosen the topic "Valentine's Day/Show some love".  A lot of people send Valentine's Day cards but there are others that don't or don't have a special someone to send one to so I chose "show some love" as well.
For my card I have chosen the Crafty Purple Frog pyromage sheet called "Red Hearts".  I have used a duo backing paper and an A4 backing paper from a My Craft Studio Click-Print-Go CD.  The flowers and leaves are also from the same CD so I have printed them off, cut them out and then inked the edges with Memento ink.  When printing out flowers I also tend to print on the back of the images with a corresponding colour and for this I have used a red polished stone paper from Crafty Ann's Digi Store.  The card has been finished off with a doily, lace, gems, brads for the centres of the flowers, Craftwork Cards sentiment and a laser cut wooden LOVE die-cut which I have inked with a red chalk ink pad.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
