WOW - how quickly December and January disappeared!  Now it's all about Love and Valentine's Day!  
Just in-case you are wondering - this card wasn't made for hubby, or anyone else either!  At last, I have found some time for crafting "just for the pleasure of it" , and when I saw this  fabulous digi image, I just had to have it, and get out the Copics!  It was a delight to colour.

The image is "Be Mine", created by the amazing  Norma J Burnell at Sweet Pea Stamps, and you can find this, and lots of other beautiful images HERE.

Items used ~

Base card - SU Crumb Cake.
 Trellis die is "Boudoir" by Tonic, cut from SU Soft Sky cardstock, layered
onto white card embossed with the SU "Woodgrain" Folder.
Image coloured with Copics, on oval die from SU Framelits Ovals Collection.
Edges inked with Distress Inks.

Happy crafting and happy Valentine's Day !
Love to all ~
