Hearts & Flowers

What a fun challenge we have for you this month at Christmas Cards All Year Round.  We want to see Red and White in honor of Valentine's day along with hearts and flowers.  I really had fun with this card and the adorable digi image by Elisabeth Bell and you can get Christmas Bells here.

Close up of Bell - she is colored with Copics, stickles for her boot snowballs and Polar White Flower Soft for the fur.  I think she is just precious but then I think All EB's images are precious....

Close up of flower arrangement using flowers from WOC with two small hearts from the die I've used on the side.

My lovely teamies have some gorgeous cards for your inspiration this month and I know you will love them so be sure and stop over at the CCAYR Challenge Blog and leave them a little love.

Magnificent, Carol! I'm so jealous of all you folks who mamanged to find the heart shaped doilies. I had no luck finding them in my area at all. The one on this card works perfectly! Wonderful flourishes and flowers, too.
