You rattle my chain - a Valentine card

Valentine's Day is just a few days away, so here's a card for that occasion.

I am featuring this adorable image from Magnolia's Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012 called Tilda with Heart Chain. Aww... ain't she cute? I've coloured her (and the other one too) with my markers.

Check her out and the other cute images from that collection at Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious. Diana has them available at fabulous discounted prices...woo-hoo. Take a look at other wondeful stuff that she's got too, like the mini Magnolia stamps, doohickey cutting dies and magazines, Memory Box dies, Marianne Design dies, and much more...

Here's how the inside of my card looks like.

That darling Tilda is called Tilda with Apple. She is also from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012.

I searched the internet and found this font here with the letters made of chain links. Cool, eh? I downloaded it for free...thanks. It's called, what else...LOL, Chain Font.

Gasp! OMGosh Norma, this card is STUNNING!!! I luv, luv, luv the deep rich red and the black for her hair and shoes and chain! Beautiful coloring with so much depth! Again, your flowers astound me. Do you use a big head stylus? Everything is put together beautifully, and I love that lace trim. But it doesn't end there! The inside of your card is just as beautiful and I love the hearts and heart border trim. You always design beautiful cards with so much detail!
