Sharing the Love

Oh my!  Can I have slipped into the new year and completely missed January?  Well it's time to share some love.  I can't stop playing with my wonderful House Mouse images.  Strangely enough, the one which I used for this card came from Michael's and was supposed to be a Christmas image.  Doesn't it look like a Valentine to you?

Of course I've added those little floating hearts myself, but for me, at least, this image simply shouts out Happy Valentine's Day.  I kept it clean and simple, anchoring the images with a "floor" of bright red.  That was coloured with my Stampin' Markers.  The images are coloured with love using my wax-based pencils and Gamsol.

For my matte I took a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock to echo the red  in the picture.  The sentiment came from another one of my House Mouse stamp sets and is perfect for the card.  I may be a day late for Valentine's and over a month late into this new year, but I'm happy to be back.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #284 - Anything goes/Love & Valentine's
