Good Evening ladies, I hope you are all well this evening (or afternoon if you are in America or Canada). I have just finished making this card for my Husband for valentines day, I intend on making a few small ones for him to hide around the house and then a larger one. This card is 4"x4" I made an envelope for it using my score pal.

The image is a new on by Doodle palace, you can buy it HERE isn't he just the cutest. I already have an order for another card using this image, my sister wants me to make on for her boyfriend :)


I didn't use a sketch for this one it is difficult when the cards are so small as you can't get too much detail on them with the image. I ran the red card through my cuttlebug to get the background design, I love this one. The image is coloured with my copic markers, I have just run out of E35 not good as this is my main base brown colour, looks like I need to make another visit to the online world of craft shops. 
I bought the Raffia lace at Quixotic Paperie, they have super fast delivery so I will be back there as soon to get some more in different colours I just love this stuff. 

I am entering this card in to the following challenges; 
Crazy 4 challenges - Be my Valentine 
Saturday Spotlight - Teeny Tiny - my card is 4"x4"
Our Creative Corner - Masculine Valentine
