My Third Commissioned Valentine's Day Card


Here is my third of four commissioned Valentine's Day card.  Thank goodness all the husbands/significant others didn't ask for ones as well!!

I was asked by another lady to make her a card for Valentine's Day for the "man in her life".  The remit here again was a bit of fun but anything cute.  I decided to use two Teddy Bo images as I thought they were cute and fitted the criteria perfectly (and so did the customer as she was delighted!!).

Again I have used the paper from my blog candy (virtually all gone now but such lovely papers) and distressed it along with the Teddy Bo images that I coloured in with promarkers and used some glitter on the fairy.  The card is finished off with some ribbon, hand-written sentiment (I thought about writing on "I wished for a knight in shining armour but got you" but decided against it.  I told the customer this and she said he'd have loved that sentiment so it shows I should have gone with what my head was telling me!!), sentiment off the computer, card candy and my scallop card.
