Red Roses for Valentines Day

Good evening fellow bloggers.  What a miserable day it's been here in the Fens - don't know why I'm saying this as I've been a warm office all day!  Anyway, on with the card.  I've made this to give to my hubby for Valentines Day.  I got the inspiration from the latest Magnolia mag.  I've used a red base card and digital papers from 'Nitwit Collections'.  The image is 'Tilda with Hearts' stamped onto white card.  I masked her and stamped the background with Art Impressions Swirls stamp in VersaColor Bisque.  This was then mounted onto a piece of red card and cut to mirror the white.  Tilda is coloured using Copics.  I punched a border with a Martha Stewart border punch 'Valentine Hearts' and wrapped red satin ribbon around it and finished it with a bow.  The roses I made using 'Brenda's' fab tutorial and punched out leaves which I then inked with various shades of greens.  I stamped the heart and cut around it then mounted it onto a piece of red card and trimmed to shape.  I inked all edges with a Brilliance ink pad in 'Poppy' and stamped the sentiment in the same colour.  Hope you like it!
