You Can Count On Vladimir

Good Morning!

It's Wednesday & it's time for a new challenge over at 
This weeks it's our Freebie Challenge.
The Prize???
Win A Guest Designer Spot for a month!
Simply go to the blog, pick up the freebie & make a card for a Dude.
Return to the blog, upload your project & pray you win! lol

The freebie is the very handsome 
Count Vladimir 
who looks extremely dashing in his Valentine's Outfit!
Just his colour don't you agree!!! Mwuhuhuhu!!!
Vladimir is trying to woo his lady but I'm not so sure he's got it right....

Every time I look at him I start singing Bad Love (Eric Clapton) lol

I used my trusty Promarkers to colour up the imge.
The papers are from the 5 Valentine Roses Backing Paper Set at 
The ribbon roses are from my stash.
The edges were all inked with a Colour Q Cats Eye ink pad.

I decorated the inside of the card too!
The sentiment was computer generated. The font I've used is
Chiller & you can download it here for free!
(There you go, a free digi & a free font!!! Whatcha waiting for???)

I had a scrap of the checked paper left & I just had to use it up!
