LOTV DT Card & Challenges

Hello Crafty Bloggers,
2 weeks have now past and we are onto another LOTV Challenge. This weeks theme is "Valentines".
This stamp is my favourite out of the new "Spring Range" just launched and is called On The Garden Wall. I have coloured with Lyra Polycolour Pencils and added touches of Spica pens. The papers are BG Sugar Rush and could not do a Valentines card without using the MS Heart Border Punch. The gorgeous frame is Spellbinders and cut on my Big Shot.
We had a great response to our last challenge and hope you can join in again. I hear the new stamps have been a great success but remember you do not need to use LOTV Stamps to enter the challenge. Its open to all.
Please take a look at my fellow DT's cards. Simply gorgeous and I feel so honoured to be working alongside such a talented bunch of ladies!

There are lots challenges my card fits this week, so deep breathe!!

La La Land - Hearts
Creative Card Crew - Valentines
Papertake Weekly - Love Actually
Crafty Cardmakers - Hearts & Romance
Lexi's Creations - Valentines
ABC - New
Incy Wincy Designs - Put Your Hat On
Double Dutch - Be My Valentine
Paper Sundaes - Valentines
Corrosive Challenge - All You Need is Love
Fussy & Fancy - Hearts
PaperPlay - Love
Pile It on - Non Wintery Colours
Charisma - Love
C.R.A.F.T - Love/Valentines

I wonder if that is a record amount of challenges for me this week!

Kreativmonster said...

The card is very pretty, but for my taste the frame - which really is gorgeous - would have been better in a different colour, this one is so dark and severe. Maybe red to match the paper?
