DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #58- Love Valentine

Lexi's Creations challenge #58  theme - 'Love (Valentine)'  Feb.6th thru Feb18th,2012

My New Store :D

Head on over to Lexi's Creations for  the challenge details AND  take a peek at all the lovely work from the multi talented Design Team while there! 

I decided to use Valentine Scruffles  from Fairy Dust Crafts for this fortnights challenge.  He is such a little sweetie and Fairy Dust has quite a few digital stamps featuring him, several of which are 'valentine' related;  was hard to pick which one to use:O)     He can be found here! 

I used a floral background stamp from Stampin Up which I stamped on pink cardstock and heat embossed for a soft romantic look.  The heart box Scruffles is holding   is covered with crystal effects, which  unfortunately, does not reflect in the photo but looks quite nice IRL. I added two little hearts to the bottom flourish. The flower is DIY, a reject from a previous card  and found in my stash!
