Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - February 2017 - Love is all around

 I was recently asked by Amy if I would like to join the Crafty Purple Frog Design Team.  I have worked in the past with Amy before so it didn't take me long to say "yes".

Amy has her own online shop "The Purple Frog" so why not pop on over and have a look at the goodies she has in the shop.

This months' challenge is "love is all around".  

Here is the card that I have made for my start as part of the Crafty Purple Frog Design Team.
 For my card I have used a Sherri Baldy Besties image (image 872) and I have coloured my image in with Promarkers.

The backing papers I have used are from a Sweet Dixie Spring Sentiments paper pad.

I have finished the card off with a Dovecraft Back to Basics heart doily edged with Tim Holtz's Victorian Velvet distress ink, stamped hearts, stamped sentiment, ribbon and little daisies cut from the backing paper.

I am entering this card into the following challenges: 

Creative Fingers - Anything goes
