Come along to Fitztown challenge blog  and join us in our Anything Goes challenge. It ends Sunday 13th July.

I was assigned the image Valentine 5, available here, and decided to make a Valentine's card with it because the image is so beautiful. Tiger lilies are my favourite flowers and so it wasn't difficult to work with this image. It was a joy to colour and after colouring I cut it with a grand Spellbinders classic oval. I added some faux gems, from JJD Cards, to the bottom edge. I generated a simple sentiment on the computer and then after cutting with a smaller Spellbinders classic oval I matted it on to a scalloped oval in orange pearlescent card. I added three more of the faux gems underneath the sentiment. My card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. The glittered backing paper is from a First Edition pad called Hideaway. I matted that on to plain orange card as the background and base for the image and sentiment. It looks quite effective now that it's finished and I love it. lol
