Valentines Love

Evening folks
Hope you are all okay.  Friday at last and I am ready for the weekend.  Mind you, this week seems to have flown by.  No more snow today but it is pretty cold.  My poor little pussy cats really hate the snow.  Have to practically force them out the door to do their business.  Bless their little hearts.
Today's card was put together for the new Polka Doodles challenge which started today.  The challenge is to produce a quick and simple Valentines card using the free digi image provided.
Here is what I came up with:
The image was printed off and coloured with promarkers.  I foiled the butterfly as I wanted quite a rustic, tatty look to it because of the distressing on the coredinations card.
The backing paper is from papermania.  Added a tatty bow, some curled flowers which I made myself , a punched butterfly and lots of pearls and gems.  

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Polka Doodles - Quick valentines using freebie image
Stamp N Doodle - Use red as main colour
Creative Inspirations - Lots of love
The Paper Shelter - Be my valentine
Fab N Funky - Love is in the air
Charisma Cardz - Things with wings
Jellypark Challenges - Shades of love
Crafty Catz - Valentines
Fussy and Fancy - With all my heart

Thanks for popping by.  Until the next time please take care.
