Valentines Day is coming

We're not particularly big on Valentines Day.......but I think one card is in order........to me red and black says love 'n hearts and all that stuff far more than pink........don't know if that has anything to do with the red roses connection.........and having said yesterday how much I love sketches......no sketch used with this one!!
Edwin has been watercoloured for a change, with some Stickles on his wings........the papers are all from my scrap box........PM heart brads, gems and flowers........Hero Arts border stamp....... Craftwork Cards card candy........heart charm from stash.
Lots of love and Valentine challenges around this week.......Stampin for the Weekend, Craft Challenge, Creative Card Crew all want 'Valentines'.........Paperplay Challenges want 'love notes'........Papertake Weekly and By the Cute and Girly want 'love'..........Your Next Stamp wants a 'charm'......Sketchy Colours and Die Cut Dreams want 'red and black' and Creative Craft Challenges want 'roses are red'

OK, I'll let you off this time lol - Valentine's Day is indeed imminent, and I need to finish off my own card! Yours is very lovely :-)

Heather said...

Edwin looks lovely! I dont do Valentine either for various reasons. That black & white paper is lurking in my stash somewhere - I should dig it out & use red with it cos it looks good how you've done it! :)
