I love all of the Polka Dot Pals from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, they are such a joy to colour up.
Romeo was released last week, as soon as I saw him I knew that I wanted to use him for my card for the new 'love' challenge starting today over on the LMM Blog...

awww he's all loved up for Valentines day :)
I coloured Romeo with my promarkers, then used my new Marianne heart dies to frame around him, but noticed after cutting that the die had left a crease across his trousers, so I grabbed my pencils and watercolour brush and went over them again, the result being darker trousers than I originally wanted, but they look better now that the crease is less noticeable.
The patterned paper is by Bazzill Basics from a pad called Nordic Pines. Once layered onto the red mirror card, I paper pierced all around the edge and dragged a brown marker through the holes for some faux stitching.
The wide brown ribbon was off a box of chocolates, knew it would come in handy.
The extra embellishments are all from my stash.
No sentiment has been added, I don't think it needs one, so this card could also be used for an anniversary as well as Valentines.

Need some inspiration for your own valentines/love themed card? check out what the other Little Misses have made this week.

I'm entering Romeo in the following challenges:
My Mums Craft Shop - love
Sweet Stampin - in stitches
The Pink Elephant - love
Passion for Promarkers - anything goes
I Love Promarkers - love is in the air

Thanks for looking, have a lovely day x
