Midway Reminder at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia-Challenge #130 "Use a Heart"

Happy Valentines Day to all my blogging friends!!

We are at the half way mark at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia in our current challenge "Use a Heart"!!  Our most wonderful sponsor is Live and Love of my FAVOURITE stores!!  Sandy has offered a 10 pound voucher for one lucky winner!!! 

I've been working on the Valentines for my Grandkiddies...last year I did a bow card for Miss Calla for Easter and Miss Mia got a plainer one so I decided to do a Valentine bow card for darling Mia!  I SO love using these templates from Sandra's Scrapshop not to mention all the fabulous goodies from Live and Love Crafts!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I used Sandra's bow template...
DP is from my stash...
I added pink ruffled ribbon around edges...
matted Tilda on a heart doily...
"My Sweet Valentine" is computer generated and cut out using Spellbinders Small Banners...
I randomly added beige pearl strings...
the bow corners are finished off with brown pearls...
I used "Christmas Heart Tilda" from the A Lovely Christmas 2015 collection...
coloured with my copics...
dusted with Shabby Pink Frantage and framed with rhinestone lace...
I added a stick pin with key and lock charms...stuck through lace bow...
closer view...
 at the bottom I threaded the white ribbon through a diamante heart buckle then added a key charm...
And that is Miss Mia's Valentine's card!!  Come on over and join us at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet talented team mates have some gorgeous creations to show you AND we can't wait for you to inspire us!!
