Sending a note/Valentine Challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio

Hi its time for a new challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio and this week our theme is 'Valentines/Passing a note. Michelle has some gorgeous images for you valentine cards in her Etsy store and I was really tempted to use the Love Letter Fairy but decided to use 'The Love Fairy' for my DT card. Michelle also has a supercute new Queen of Hearts image which I was hoping to use to make a Valentine tag but its currently stuck in a Martha Stewart punch lol.

I've coloured Love Fairy with promarkers and added clear Sparkle EP to her wings and red sparkle EP to the hearts although it doesn't show up too well in the pic. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the red card was cuttlebugged using a gorgeous embossing folder that I received in a wonderful parcel of blog candy from my cyber buddy Audrey (pop over to her blog as she has some more candy up for grabs too!!)

The flowers are actually from an arrangement of silk flowers that someone gave me ages ago, layered on to a red paper flower and some rose leaves from the same silk flower arrangement. The satin effect bp is from my stash.

I'm entering the Love Fairy in the following challenges:
Bee Crafty : Hearts
Crafty Emma's Challenge: Red and Romance
Crafty Purple Frog: Valentine's Day/Romance
Creative Inspirations Paint: Inspired by hearts
Sentimental Sunday: Valentines Day
The Crafty Pad: Love is in the Air

I hope you find time to join us in our challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio, if you don't have one of Michelle's images then you can pop over to her Etsy Store or pick up a freebie from one of Michelle's groups on SNR, CDAC or PCP.

Thanks for visiting today
