Sassy Valentine's

Hello to all, today I would like to share a card I have made for Valentine's day a Co worker of mine has ordered and I thought I would enter this into a few other challenges at the sametime.
I used a sassy design studio image called Victorian and I loved colouring her as I liked the layers on her dress which look great when blended in. I used my spectrum noir pens which I love but have been thinking about getting some copic ciaos so if anyone has used these and could give me some advice on them, if I should buy some please let me know what you think I would love to hear from you.
So onto the card.
I have used some Lace, flowers and pearls, the paper is from first edition papers love letters, I inked all edges with Worn lipstick distress ink and cut the heart from my new e craft machine which I love, finished off with a bow and used some Tim Holtz chit chat words for the sentiment.

Pens used:-
Skin-FS2 FS3 FS4 FS8 CR3
Hair- GB9 GB10 CT3
Dress- CR7 CR9 CR11 DR3

I would like to enter this into theses challenges-
Friday Sketch Challenge
Brown Sugar Challenge- Valentine's
Inky Chicks - bingo ( Flowers, Lace and pearls)
Creative Inspirations- Anything Goes with optional theme flowers
Crafting When We Can Challenge- Strawberries and Cream ( red and White)

So I will say goodbye for now and come back on Sunday as a new challenge starts over on Glitter N Sparkle and I will post my DT entry.

Bookmarks with a twist

This little old project I saw in the Craft Stamper magazine and really wanted to give it a go, I then thought this could be the perfect craft to enter into Crafters Companion anything but a card challenge.
Now this involves Dulux colour swatches and stamping an image,
I picked the Toread stamps by Crafters companion.

I also did one with a free set of Sawing stamps then all I did was stamp with stazon matted on to black card punched a hole and set an eyelet and put in some ribbon and a few pearls.
I think the saying is simple but effective, a loverly bookmark.

I would love to hear peoples comments or feedback on this project.
