Be Mine

Good afternoon. It's Friday! YEAH!!

This is my first Valentines Day card. Isn't he adorable!!! His name is Eris the Elephant by Sew Many Cards. I found this free digi last night and had to color him. I love the heart shaped balloons. After I colored them I put Crystal Effects on them. I love Crystal Effects but I hate waiting for it to dry.

My card fits into the following challenges.

Sew Many Cards - Anything Goes - These images are so cute. When I saw Eris I knew I had to make my 1st Valentine card with him.

Dare you to Digi Stamp - Buttons - I thought that buttons would be the perfect addition to this card. They look good with the cute image.

Tuesday Morning Sketches - Buttons and Bows - In addition to the buttons I put ribbon on most of my cards so the bow was a no brainer here.

Cute Card Thursday - Pink and Gray - PERFECT!!! When I saw this image I knew I would be doing this challenge.

Friday Sketchers - The sketch this week worked perfectly with my image.

Crafty Ann's - Embossing - I love embossing!! I put it on so many cards.

Daring Cardmakers - Hole in One - The card needed to have at least one hole in it. Great Idea. Mine is the hearts punch!

Paperplay - Furry Friends - Elephants have fur right?? I think of all animals as being furry friends.

Polka Doodles - Love - This is my first Valentines Day card so it fits with love.

Thank you for stopping by. Let me know what you think of Eris.
