My Bestie Valentine

Good morning everyone. Not only is it Monday again but, unbelievably, February is here already! Yesterday saw the sad death of yet another British icon, Terry Wogan. He was on the radio and TV throughout my life and another person who, like David Bowie, seemed immortal. I'm certainly glad to see the back of this January.

Today at My Besties UK we have a new challenge Anything Goes with option Buttons and Brads. Don't forget to pop over and see the other DT cards, as they are fabulous as always.

I chose a Valentine image for my card, IMG 452, available to buy here. I chose to colour her in bright pink to complement the new papers I bought recently (from the Sara Davies Crafter's Companion Love and Romance collection).

The colours used were:
Skin FS2 FS4 FS9 CR2
Eyes TB1 TB3
Hair TN1 EB1 EB2
Clothes BP1 BP2 BP6

The dies used are a Tonic Frame die and the Heart Cluster from the Sara Davies collection. My heart shaped buttons are from Trimcraft's Serendipity collection. 

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