Lee's Valentine's Card.

Hi everyone,

I decided to make Lee's Valentines day card yesterday and I finished it today!  Just in time for the sun to kind of come out.

I finished it, took a photo and decide it looked wrong so I moved things about and successfully didn't rip the card so bad I had to throw it away!
Here are the before photo's

I ran out of Red card but REALLY wanted to use this red so I had to use blue card and then got some of the scraped red card and stuck that to the bottom part!
Here is the after photo

I think it's much nicer.  I had to add the little blue hearts jewel because there was a little rip in the card there!
The promarkers ran a little bit :(  but I am so low on white card I could not use anymore!

I used the sketch at Papertake weekly for the main part and just moved the sentiment.  I got the colour ideas from Sassy Designs by Susie challenge which is Red, White and blue!
I'd like to enter this for the following challenges too:
Crafty Cardmakers - Hearts and Romance
Lexi's Creations - Valentines
Cute Card Thursday - Flowers
Die Cuts R Us - Ribbon
Fussy and Fancy Challenges - Hearts
Incy Wincy Designs - Buttons, bows, ribbon and lace.  (I don't have any lace so I don't know if I can enter this, but I thought i'd try anyway!)
Fab N Funky - Use Digi.  The image is a digi :)

Lots of challenges!
