You hold the key to my heart

Hello.

Valentine's just around the corner, so here's a card that can be used for that occasion.



I love this colour combo of pink and green--so easy to work with--and this adorable gal from Magnolia is called Tilda with Pie. She's from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012. She is coloured with markers.



In the inside of my card, I've put another adorable Tilda. This one is called Tilda with Wrapped Heart. She is also from the same Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012.

You can get all your Magnolia products from Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious--stamps, dies magazines. You can also find there dies from Memory Box and Marianne Design. Diana offers wonderful discounts, excellent service and you can collect store credits too.



The shaped cutout around Tilda and the blank space one (where you can write your personal little love notes) were made using a circle die for the round part and my craft knife and ruler for the straight edges. I was trying to make them look like key holes--you know to go with the key and the sentiment. But...I know, I know...they look like bread slices, don't they!!! LOL.

Challenges I am entering with this card:
Creatalicious Challenge #30 – Love and use punched border, ribbon, flowers and bling
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #147 – Texture please!
Let's Ink It Up Challenge #19 - Anything Goes


That's it for me. Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by. I appreciate your visit. Have a fabulous week.
