Cheap Valentine!

Ha ha!
It's Wednesday & the Dude Time Doodles, Dude & Dudettes officially have a day off but
as there is a  fab new image by Marlene AKA Marlooney
being showcased on the challenge blog,
a couple of us decided to join in & make a project!
How could we not!!!
Here's my card!

The image is called Cheap Valentine 
& will be available in the store!
I love the expression on her face! Flowers & Chocolates AGAIN! 
All she wanted to do was to go on a Romantic Cruise!
Don't you get caught out my lovelies!
Wait until the festive holday/Christmas rush is over & 
send him a just because reminder card!!! lol
My base card is an A6 tent fold textured card.
My paper is snakeskin & I've been hoarding this but I felt it was perfect for this card!
I coloured the image with Promarkers then cut out with a nestie.
 I've used colours to match the Colour Q Challenge #115 palette

The layout is the sketch from The Sweet Stop

I used a Travel design paper from Creat & Craft TV for my panel.

I added some sisal mesh around the card & tied on an Anchor charm,
 with some sisal ,to keep the Cruise theme going!
The sentiment is my own & I printed it out in Wacky Action BTN font 
which you can find free here!
My Card has been inspired by & entered into the following challenges
