Well, after not posting my Sugar Bowl challenge entry in time for the last challenge, I've made sure I won't miss it this time. It's done and dusted in plenty of time.
The theme is love and romance for Valentines Day. And as my 12 year old son Jordan wanted a card for his girlfriend, Cathy....and I know she doesn't read my blog, this one is from him, to her for that special day, ahhhhh.
I used Daisy Bucket papers which I absolutely love, and these particular ones have the love theme, so are very apt.... This is quite a simple card, not that much going on, but lo and behold, it hides a little secret.......
A secret little love note (well it will be a note when Jordan has written on it), just tucked behind the picture. I'm sure you can imagine any twelve year old boy may want to hide his feelings towards a girl, and not have them spilling everywhere for all to see. And when I showed him this he was well impressed. Well, in fact the words were, "oh, cool". I guess that says it all.... As the papers are doublesided, I cut the heart from the reverse side of one of them, and stuck it onto a piece of card, along with a circle of text from another paper. I added a Prima flower with a heart brad through the centre, and some tiny sparkling crystals.
I decorated the inside to match, again keeping it simple. The images are coloured with Copic's of course.
I thought I might make a little gift box of heart shaped chocolates to match. He'll be all set then. I hope when Valentines day finally arrives, she is suitably impressed.....
