A Valentine Card

I still don't know what was wrong with the bluetooth ... blah these computers!!! It's ok now... so here is my card for today .. a Valentine Card using this adorable Lenny Love digi stamp from Gerda. Aww so so cute, I love these teddies :)
For my card today I used a Martha Stewart punch for the corners, a Fiskars punch for the borders and my new Nestabilites for the centrepiece. I coloured Lenny with my promarkers, and today I did some real stitching all around. The lovely sentiment is from Crafty Sentiments Designs.
The papers are actually a piece of wrapping paper which I had left over !!! yes... yes... I'm always keeping all sorts of things and scraps.. . but then when I finally use something I am so happy I kept it! I even cut out two hearts from it, stuck them to some thick card and popped them up... came out real nice and shiny.

I am entering my card in these challenges today.. lots of LOVE themed ones at the moment..
