Happy Valentine's Day

Today it is Valentine's day here in the UK.  I recently won a challenge over the 2 Crafty Crazy Critters Challenge Blog where Sasayaki Glitter were the sponsor.  I had a look at the images and chose this one as I thought I could use it for my husband's Valentine's day card.  The image I have used is called "Image #95 - Turtle love".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and added Glossy Accents to the eyes (I am having to use my husband's tablet to take my photos as my computer is poorly and will not download images from my camera.  The eyes in real life look totally smooth but they look a bit bumpy with the Glossy Accents in this photo but not sure how to tweak things on the tablet to enhance pictures).  I then fussy cut out the images.

The backing papers I have used are from a pad from B&M.  I chose the one with greenery as I thought it was a nice backdrop to the turtles.

I have finished the card off simply with a heart doily which I have coloured with Tim Holtz's Shabber Shutters distress ink, stamped and die-cut sentiments and some Nuvo pearl drops.

Promarkers used:

Turtles - Meadow Green, Apple, Leaf Green, Olive Green, Marsh Green, Poppy and Berry Red.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
