Sweet Valentine!

Here I am again with this weeks DT Card for
Digi's With Attitude! Challenge #16!
This weeks Challenge is a colour challenge!
"Use Red & White OR Pink & White!"

What else could I do but make a Valentine card considering the colours in the challenge & the time of year! 
My dearly beloved might be lucky & get two cards this year!
On second thoughts, I might send one to myself!!!
It'll most likely be the only one I get!!! lol
The lovely image I used was the newsest "Tween" on the blog! She's none other than "Valentine Tween" & she soon to join all the other cute "Tweens With 'Tude" over in the Digi's With Attitude Store! Watch this space!
Don't forget there will soon be a new freebie in store too!
For the design of my card I followed the fab Saturday Sketch from Sweet Stampin
The DPs are from the "5 Valentine Rose Backing Papers " set over at Cardmaking Downloads 
I punched both edges of the large heart paper to give it the scalloped effect!
As you can see I opted for Red & White! I cheated a bit with a little Pink & Green but I think I'll get away with that!

I coloured the image with my Promarkers & I used a white gel pen to highlight areas on the hearts & on her shoes.I used the blender pen on the flowers & on the bench to give them the pinky tinge! I cut the image
 & matt out with my nesties!

The sentiment I used was simply a peel off coloured with the same promarker as the hearts & the dress & I cut the corners with a corner punch, just to give it a bit of shape!

The little hearts are brads, my great little bargain find on my recent visit to the Hobbycrafts 70% off sale!
Thanks sooo much for stopping by! I do hope you'll find the time to join us in the Challenge! I'm sure you're all making at least one project using Red & White or Pink & White!
