Write the softest words and kiss them…

I have a Valentine’s card to share with an adorable new image from Simply B Stamps Teen Scene Holiday collection, Batty for Rio.

As always, I’ve coloured my image with my trusty Copics so I’m entering the Addicted to Stamps and More challenge.  I’ve gone with traditional Valentine’s colours with this one, in soft pinks, and added some mulberry flowers for a bit of interest.

I’ve also finally broken out some of my endless supply of washi tape to help break up the background.  With my washi tape element I am entering this in the current Ribbon Carousel challenge.

I am really on a Fran-tage kick at the moment, I’ve used it again to edge my die cut, I love the bit of sparkle it adds.  I was going to put more as a background to the image but am glad I held off, I think it would have been too much had I added it.  All in all, I think this is a rather cute Valentine’s card, and with the batty messenger bringing a love letter there is definitely love in the air so I’m also entering the Make My Monday challenge.
