I cherish you card (Crafts & Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Although I've used similar colours in these 3 cards I've posted tonight, I think they all look quite different, especially this one. I was ultra-excited to colour up this beautiful image from Hannah Lynn (find her images at C&Me). The thing I most love about Valentine's Day themed cards is using red and pink together, its one of my favourite colour combinations in cardmaking. 

I have also used some leaves, pearls and the red flower from Flourish with a Bling. We are selling all our products at a ridiculous $2 each this month, that's more than half off most products!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide.
