Creative Inspirations #52 & CES #21 & Penny Black 136

Hi girls thank you for calling in on my blog. It's great to have you here. I hope you enjoy your visit and find something to please the eye. I hope the weather is OK where you are. We had snow again yesterday. Thankfully it was quickly followed by torrential rain and high winds so it got short shift. Mind you we have a lot to be thankful for when you see what those poor souls in Australia are suffering. It looks horrendous and I do hope it all stops soon and that all our blogging pals are safe and unharmed.
My card today was made to suit three challenges. Creative Inspirations had the theme of "Valentine/Love", CES Challenge wanted "Bold and Bright" and Penny Black gave a fabulous sketch. The image is Penny Black's "Cupful of Love" and I coloured it with a mixture of Copics and Polychromos Pencils. The papers are from Stampin Up and I used Bazzil as a mount. The swirls are by Marianne Designs and I used a Fiskars border punch and a Martha Stewart leave punch. The flowers are by Wild Orchid and the ribbons are from my stash.
I enjoyed making this card so I hope you like it. It would be great if you had a minute to leave a comment letting me know what you think of it. I appreciate every comment left. I hope you get all tidied up for the weekend and have a great time. Enjoy your crafting and above all stay safe and healthy.
