Be Mine Forever!!

Evening Folks
Was a bit of a chilly start this morning.  Very severe frost meant a bit of scraping of the car before I could go out.  Was quite cold all day but the sun was out so not all bad.
Decided I needed to get a head start on some of the cards I have to make.  So today's offering is a Valentines Card.  Used this image from Dude Time Doodles 'Count Vladimir' to make this card.  Their current challenge is to make a card using this free image.
Kept the colouring of the image quite simple and stuck to the traditional colours for Valentines.  The backing paper and cardstock were all in my stash.  Added a heart shaped ribbon slider to the ribbon, some flowers, a feather and the gorgeous silver corner as embellishments.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch and Stash - 78 (new stash: silver corner, flowers, image   Old stash: paper, ribbon)
Dude Time Doodles - use free image
One Stop Craft Challenge - #165 On the spot and ribbon
Pile It On - #2 Manly Cards

Thanks for looking and hope you all enjoy your weekend.
