Forever in Love

With Valentine's Day just around the corner I thought that I better get to work on my husband's Valentine's Day card. He isn't one to like all the red and pinks or hearts everywhere so making a card for him is a challenge every year. When I first saw this digi from at Mo's Digital Pencil I knew it was the perfect image for the card. My hubby is always laughing that we are getting old (not this old yet) though he is the one with the grey hair!

I like making a Valentine card that is non traditional, especially because I love these colors together, they are my favorite colors also, and it makes me think a bit more about how I create the card, KWIM. I am really happy with the way it came out and I am sure Don will like it.

These are the challenges that this card works with
Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #17-This was a fun challenge because you had to have wood or "would" on your card. My park bench is wood so it works!
ABC Challenge-This challenge is N for new. My digi that I used is new I just bought it this week.
Challenge Up Your Life Challenge #13-This is a Valentine challenge and you need to include hearts with your creation. I have 3 hearts on the top and also I used a heart border punch so I guess I covered.
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 98-The challenge this week is to use spots and dots on your card. I used polka dot DP and I embossed the navy cs with my dotted swiss embossing folder.
Double Dutch DDC#36-This challenge, Be My Valentine says it all. Since I made this card for my husband for Valentine's Day I think it fits this challenge though not a traditional valentine.
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #9-The challenge this week is "emboss it". I love to emboss for texture on a card so I embossed the back round cs with my dotted swiss embossing folder.
Magical Crafts Challenge #7-Another wonderful challenge that is a valentine card. The DT cards are so cute with the love bugs that they used!
Creative Belli Challenge #84-This challenge was really fun because it was to use ribbons on your card. I almost didn't use it on this card but couldn't imagine not having a bow on it!
Frosted Designs Challenge-With Valentine's Day just around the corner how fitting to have a valentine challenge, helps me to get to work on my Valentine cards lots of great inspiration to see!
Papertake Weekly Challenge-Love Actually is the challenge, how perfect for a valentine challenge!
Charizma Cards Challenge #5-I Love You, is this week's challenge. I hope my husband thinks that this card says this to him!
Stamp Something Challenge-Love Somethings is the challenge this week. I think this image definitely says love. Great challenge this week.
Crazy For Challenges C4C23- This is another wonderful challenge with the theme of Valentine's Day, Be My Valentine. This is a great challenge blog!
