February Duel

Happy Wednesday!

Today is our February Duel, and our lovely hostess is Deb. She sent a wonderful card kit, it was full of images, patterned paper, and embellishments. Our theme is "Let Me Call you Sweetheart!"

In the kit we had a choice of several images and sentiments. The one I chose is for a general Valentine's Day card. As you can tell, I kinda went overboard with the embellishments. The cording that was in the kit was to thick to thread thru the charm so I unraveled it, using only one strand.

My Valentine this year was my daughter. She and I cooked dinner, and had a relaxing evening.

Card details
image-Happy Heart Day, SU!
pattern paper is by My Minds Eye
assorted embellishments, ribbon, cord (I unraveled it to make it smaller to fit the charm)
image colored with copics and colored pencils with gamsol.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have blessed day!


  1. ohh wowww...what a cutie pie of a card this is!
    Have to adit I too unraveled the cord AND>>> omgosh Michelle..I too, originally placed same pearl brad on the same spot on the heart (my stickles smeared so I redid the heart part by piecing it)
