Love Always at CD Sunday

Hello everyone, I'm having a week off from posting the challenge over at CD Sunday. Since we decided to have two teams I now only have to post the challenge every other week and Carol has stepped up and taken on the other teams postings so not only do I get a week off I get to join in just like everyone else.

This week I was asked by one of the guys in work if I would make him a valentine card for his wife, well I have been wondering what to do as I don't really know if she is someone who likes cute or is more traditional so I have combined the two. I used Craft Artist and Docrafts Digital designer to make this card, the background is from a digi kit called Lace Market, there are a few embelishments that are all ready to go and all I did was drag the square panel onto the page, resize it and colour it the same as the backing, I then added a shadow so you could see it and it was done. I do like the effect as it does look a little like it's an extra piece on top. The bear is from the digital designer, I exported him and dropped him into CAP, I took him into the cut out studio and removed all the white around him and just resized him to fit in the centre of the card, I then printed out two more bears and cut out the layers for decoupage, the words are in the same colour grey as the bear as I used the dropper to pick up the colour.

I coloured some white ribbon to match and tied a double bow then added a heart shaped gem to finish it off, I put a dab of glue on every rose and added some red glitter, for the inside I used the same lace panel and coloured it white added a shadow and put a small bear in the bottom corner found a verse on the internet and I just hope he likes it now! Mind you if he doesn't I could have just made my own valentine card.
