Charisma Cardz DT - Valentines / Love

Morning Folks!! Hope you've all had a good week so far! Mine has been rather busy and it looks like my blog's gonna be rather quiet for a bit as I have a stack of behind the scenes dt work. Anyway, on with today's card which is for Charisma Cardz DT and this week the lovely Carlz has chosen the theme Valentines / Love which gave me the perfect excuse to ink up one of my new Maggies! I have used Magnolia papers from last Christmas' collection, I know, it's supposed to be Valentine's but I thought the red works quite well.

As always my image has been coloured in with Copics and I used a Crafters Companion stamp from the Love Collection to add the swirls and hearts on the side with brushed corduroy di by Tim Holtz. The swirl is a doohickey die, the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps "Love Collection", ribbon is from my stash and the blooms are Wild Orchid Crafts. I will be entering my card into the following challenges :
A spoonfull of sugar - Valentine
Bunny Zoe's - Love is in the air
Craft your days away - Love
Crafts & Me - monochrome
Creative Craft - Monochromatic Madness
Just Magnolia - Sketch
