Be Mine... or else!

Happy Valentines Day!!  Today I have a Valentines card I made for my darling hubby :-) 
 My husband is definitely NOT the soppy card variety, he has a wicked sense of humour so when I saw this image I knew exactly where it was going :-) 
The image is "Cupid You're Mine" from Just Inklined, I coloured with Copics.  Cute Card Thursday has An Eye For Detail as their challenge theme, I think the eyes on these too characters fit the bill perfectly, lol.  Craft Us Crazy wants us to use our Favourite Things, a few of my favourites here: I love digis, especially quirky images like this, and I like lots of colour and layers, so I'm entering the challenge.
I used this great sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp,  I've changed the image from a circle to a square and put the three "stars" (in my case hearts) on the image panel instead of the background, but hopefully it's close enough.  The hearts are all brads from my stash, with Stickles added, Stampin' for the Weekend has Use Metal for their challenge, so I'm in there.
The papers are from Kaisercraft's Made With Love collection, the little gold hearts on the front are nice and sparkly, I added some gold Stickles to  one of the hearts on the inside to make that sparkly too :-)  The 2 Sisters Challenge is Hearts, Gem of a Challenge has Hearts/Valentines, Crafty Creations has Love and/or Hearts and Papertake Weekly is Hearts or Flowers so I'm entering there too.  The horizontal strip on the front is card mounted on ribbon, I added a dot of red Stickles to the centre of each little heart. The glittery discs on the two corners are from a pack I got (several packs of actually) for 50c - love a bargain, lol.  
The sentiment is a rub on... "be mine" on the outside and "forever mine!" on the inside, I like the almost sinister sound of it, I think it goes with the image - firmly tucked with my tongue to the inside of my cheek!! 
The inside is decorated with one sheet from the Made With Love pad, I used a Fiskars punch to punch the holes so you could see the black card showing through - they're not even but I DID follow the pattern printed on the paper :-)  I used my lovely new paper piercer to pierce the card (imagine that, lol) and used a very fine pen to add faux stitching to the image panel and around the edge of the inside.  Fab'n'funky Challenges wants to see us decorate the inside of our cards this time (easy peasy, I always decorate the inside) and Aud Sentiments wants us to Show them our Inner Sentiment, so I'm entering there too.
That's it for today's card, I'll be back in a couple of days with my son's birthday card and our Anniversary card.  Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
