BC138 - A Valentine for You

HAPPY FRIDAY! - It's Blogger Challenge day and today we are sharing cards/projects with a Valentine theme.

For my card today I chose this adorable turtle digi image which I received for FREE from Karen's Doodles  I just love how cute this image is.  Karen has a bunch of wonderful digi images so if you haven't checked her site out yet hurry on over, it's worth checking into.

I colored my image with Prisma Color pencils, blended with Gamsol.
For this card I once again chose the Basic Grey Lemonade DP.  I liked this pattern because it reminded me of the patterns on the turtle's shell.  Card Stock Colors:
Melon Mambo, Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose, Whisper White.
Accesories: Ribbon from Ellen Hutson, Nestabilties Dies, Love Charm from Making Memories.

Don't forget to click on the BC Icon on my sidebar to check out the other members blogs and see their wonderful Valentine's.  Have a great weekend and don't forget to show some love to those you care about.  God Bless
