A brand new Colour Challenge

Hello friends :o)

Hope you are all doing very well.

We have a new Colour Challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
This month TRACY has chosen the colours PINK, BLACK, & RED.
I was very lucky to find all I needed for my card right here at home in my 'stash'!
Here is her picture of the colours:

Since I don't have any of the new stamps yet from the 'You're So Special' Collection I have used 'Tilda with Hanging Heart' # 3081 at Diana's store, from the 'Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010'
I think she works OK for Valentine's Day. I didn't have to make a Valentine card but choose to do so....

Here is a closer picture of Tilda:
Oh dear I am having so much trouble with my camera these days :o(

Let's hope the next ones are better, here is the bow with 4 loops:

and the inside:

Hope you enjoy my project this time :o)
Don't for get to pop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to look at the beautiful work the Design Team has made.

Diana is giving away a $25.00 Gift Certificate to the winner of the Challenge. Lucky girl will get to buy some more Maggies!!!
Love, Candy
