Tilda and Her Sweetie - A Valentine Card

Hello Sweet Readers,

How are you this wonderful Wednesday? I have a card to share with you that I had forgotten to post. It is featuring the hugging Tilda and Edwin stamp I made this card for a neighbor. She had told me that the sentiment on the front is something she tells her husband all the time. So, I thought I'd put it front and center!

The images were colored with distress inks. I know, I should pull out the Copics, but they are sooooooooo intimidating! LOL I feel so comfortable using the inks! Here is the first shot:

I used my Nesties, a MS border punch, some Kindyglitz, flowers from my stash, mirrored cardstock, grosgrain ribbon, a Memory Box die, machine stitching, and distressed edges.

This is the interior of the card:

The inside is pretty self explanatory. There is a hidden tag behind the sentiment mat. I've had the corner dies since they first came out and never used them before, LOL. I thought this might be a good time. I had found the heart button in my stash and put it to good use in the center of the doily.

My neighbor did love it! I was so glad. I hope you like it too!

Thank you s much for visiting. I love that you take the time to stop by. You make my hard work worthwhile! I so love each of you!

Your Card is beautiful! I've not colored with my distress inks, I don't know how. I guess I need to take a class. All I color with is my Copics lol.
