Creative Inspirations #52 Valentine/Love DT card

Good Morning my Lovelies,  Well I'm feeling a little better this morning but I didn't have a very good night last night,  I think because I'd been in and out of bed all day with this dreaded lurgy,  so I had a very disturbed nights sleep.  What ever it is I've caught it has totally drained me of energy.  I'm typing this in a kinda haze. Mind you that's not so unusual for me. lol

It's Sunday morning and time for another challenge over at Creative Inspirations for this fortnight.  What an amazing number of entries we had for our Birthday Celebrations and our Blog Hop.  It was amazing.

I'm looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations for the new theme which is Valentine/Love.  I've gone down the route of a non traditional colour theme for my Valentine card, using golds, browns, ivory and whites.  I think it looks quite nice.  I've used sweet Tilda and coloured her with TH distress inks and I am thoroughly enjoying using this medium (always nice to have a change now and then)  My full recipe for my card is below this post.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and that you will pop over and join in the challenge at some stage over the next two week.
