Polkadoodle Challenge 6 - Valentine Love

It's Friday so that means the blogging comes thick and fast!  My Simply Create Too post is below and the Jellypark challenge will be along very soon!  But this one is the turn of the new Polkadoodle challenge and the theme this week is:

Valentine Love

I've used an image from the Love and Cherish cd - printed it directly onto the card stock and then cut it out with a fancy X Cut die.  I've layered it onto another die cut (I actually chopped it in half so it fanned out a little!)

The card shape is also made using the largest of the X Cut dies but I had to cheat a little as the die was not quite as large as I wanted so it is a little wonky in places!

I've decoupaged the central heart and added glossy accents over the top.  All edges have been inked with brown and then black ink and I've added some half pearls from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!
