Post early for Valentine's Day!

Hello all!
    I took a short break from the CAS regime for my card today, although it's still not a 'fully loaded' creation compared to some out there.  It's not that I necessarily prefer CAS styles, just that I find it a whole lot easier.  to do.  Case in point - this card took me hours to do and I'm not even including the colouring time!
                  I merged the Saturated Canary digi, 'Hipster' with my own Love Conquers All digi and added the 'Be my Valentine' sentiment.  I had wanted to do a vintage feel Valentine's card so went with sepia and brown tones, using my Copics to do all the colouring.  Using Kraft paper I cut flowers and a tag shape with my Cameo and then stamped and heat embossed some script onto them, wrapped a chipboard heart with some twine and added aTim Holtz ticket and some pearls.



                    The current challenge at Saturated Canary is Movie Inspiration and my movie is "Valentine's Day" - doh!  No kidding huh?
        I would also like to enter this into the challenges at 613 Avenue Create, Dream ValleyOne Stitch at a Time and Pile it on.



Thanks so much for stopping by - I truly appreciate your visits and comments.  A warm welcome to my newest blog friends/followers too :)
