Happy Valentine's Day

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day everyone. Today I wanted to share the card I made for my husband this year. To be honest I wasn't sure if I could get away with pink for a male card but I think this fab black and pink paper works.

The image is a super cute Sherri Baldy My Bestie digi stamp called Hearts a Flutter. I really love this one and you can buy it in the My Besties shop.

The heart die, sentiment stamp and paper are all from Sara Davies' Signature Love and Romance collection from Crafter's Companon. My husband and I have been together since we met at university, nearly 24 years ago, so this sentiment is really appropriate for us.

I found that my favourite pale skin Spectrum Noir marker (FS2) had run out so I was forced to try out a new combination. In the end I quite like the result.
Colours used were:
Skin TN1 TN2 FS1 FS7
Boy:Hair TN4 TN5 TN7 TN8
Clothes TB3 TB4 TB5 IG1 IG2 IG5 IG7
Girl: Hair TN1 EB1 EB2
Clothes PP3 PP5 DR3

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
