DTC #97 - From the Heart - valentines card

Happy tuesday everyone and thank you for visiting my blog today! We have another fun challenge for you this week over at digital tuesday. The amazing Shelly is our hostess and she chose the theme

From the heart - valentine's theme

Our sponsor, Paper pretties, generously let each design team member choose one of their cute images. I chose the image "caffeine mouse". What a cutie!!

I used derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil for coloring. The image was printed out twice so I could pop up the mouses head, but it is hard to see in the picture. The edges were sponged with some turquois ink. My papers are old ones from stampin up. I embellished with some cuttlebug hearts, ribbon and stickles glitter.

Some challenges I combined here:
I hope you'll join us this week, there is a fabulous prize up for grabs from paper pretties.


And just a reminder, there is still lots of time to play in this month's Penny Black at All sorts challenge with the theme of "say it with flowers". Lots of prizes up for grabs there, all you have to do is make a card using a Penny Black image and then use some flowers.

Hope you'll have a fantastic day!
