Bonus Valentine

Shelly's Images is having a Bonus Valentine challenge for this month.  Shelly provided a free digi to those who wanted to enter the challenge.  This is what I came up with.

I used the heart with the keyhole.  I didn't use the key because I couldn't figure how to get it cut out right since I am  having issues with my Cameo right now.  Anyway, the key is not necessary because the sentiment says YOU have the key.  I used Recollections for my card base and embossed it with a Sizzix folder.  I fussy cut the heart and outlined it with 110 black Copic marker.  I colored the heart with Copics.  I used American Crafts foil paper to cut the flourish with a Sizzix die and also for the background for the sentiment.  The flower is from Prima and the heart brad is from my stash.  I used Rouge Liquid Pearls in the centers of the embossed hearts.
 Challenges I'm entering with this card:


  1. Margaret, this is just so pretty! I love your coloring on the heart and that embossing with the hearts is the perfect background! Thanks so much for joining our Bonus Challenge. Be on the look out on March 1st because we will have another fun Bonus Challenge and an awesome freebie to use with it.
