Love Always!

Morning all, day off for me today woohoo! It's a bit wet out there but much warmer, for now at least!
Now I have another sketch today this time from Simon says Stamp Challenge:

I seem to have a serious lack of Anniversary type cards in my stash and with valentines around the corner I decided to go with a romantic theme for this one.

I use done of my old fave Penny Black hedgies coloured with Copics and went with a simple red & white colour scheme. The buttons are a Marianne Design die covered with Glossy Accents, The circles are Nesties and the hearts are actually cut out from a piece of sheer fabric I kept from something ages ago and knew it would come in useful one day. I cut out the hearts from it and stuck them onto card to stop them fraying. The sentiment is by Hero Arts and the ribbon was a prize from The Ribbon Girls a while ago. I also did a bit of doodling around the edges to finish it off!

I am also entering this into:

Thanks for looking, hope you all have a great day!
