Challenge #53 - "You Have My Heart"

Valentine's Day is almost here so we thought you would want to do something dealing with the heart.  Your creation does not have to be a Valentine as such, but it must deal with the heart in some way.  Of course, it doesn't hurt to be romantic this time of year.
This little card uses a Bird Couple image from Just Some Lines.  The two wedding birds are colored with watercolor pencils.  The image is then placed on the Waltzing Matilda die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  In the two upper corner are two corner dies from CLD.  Finishing off the card is a flower sticker.

I chose Emo I will Catch You from Just Some Lines.  Such a cute and playful digi image, colored with markers then fussy cut out.  Quilted heart was made with snippets and the sentiment was taken from my Granddaughter's stash!

Here is a sweet little girl digital image from "Just Some Lines" and she is bringing Valentine wishes. I colored her with pencils and laid her out on a heart doily with decorative papers. She is definitely getting me in the mood for Valentine's Day and making many more cards with heart themes! I hope you'll join the fun.
I just love the "Emo" Character from Just Some Lines - she's so cute!! I've made this tag with Distress Stains and coloured Emo to match, added some lettering, rubber stamped swirl and a sheer ribbon to the top!
My tag has been made from distressed and gessoed cardboard.
I have used Emo Amber and the Heart Balloon to create my CAS card. I added some fine-liner hearts to the red base card. The colouring was done with my pencils and is really accents of colour. I hope that it conveys the theme and inspires many of you to come and join us!
My sponsor is Just Some Lines.

I used Wedded Bliss (, printed directly onto the DP and colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits. I added some glitter and a sticker sentiment. 

Now for my sponsor
