Aud Sentiments Challenge #21 - Corny Valentines Quote

Well what a wonderful amount of gorgeous entries we had in the Aud Sentiments challenge over the last fortnight.  I really enjoyed going and having a look and picked up ideas for my future creations.  It's time now for Aud Sentiments Challenge No 21 which is "corny Valentines quote".  This fortnight we are lucky to be sponsored by Inktegrity.  They are giving the winner a $10 Gift Certificate to use in their store.  Here is a little background on Inktegrity:

My name is Joni Wilson, I am the sole designer of Inktegrity's images. Inktegrity was started out of my love for card making; my designs are fun for all ages and can be resized to fit your crafting needs. All of my images are inspired by upcoming holidays, everyday life, and friends' requests. Please visit the store site at: http://inktegrity.com and browse through the different categories. Happy crafting to you, thank you for creating with Inktegrity!

For my Design Team card I used an 8x8 white card blank.  I used some Crafty Ann's digital papers and some digital papers from the Funky Fairy which I got before she closed down her store.  I used this cute monkey image from Inktegrity.  It does come with a fun sentiment but I decided to make my own up.  All my eldest son said when he read it was that it was terrible.  I then said the criteria for the challenge was "corny Valentines quote" and he said that that fitted!!!  I have coloured the image with Promarkers, distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool, inked with a chalk ink pad and then added some gold Stickles on the top to add a bit of shine and texture.  I have embossed two pieces of card with Tim Holtz's bark embossing folder, made the flourishes and flower with Marianne dies and then the card is finished off with the sentiment off the computer, gingham ribbon and card candy.

I hope you can find time to enter our challenge this fortnight.  We will look forward to seeing your creations.
