Prairie Fairy blog hop & valentine's challenge!

to Prairie Fairy's 1st DT Blog Hop! If you came here from Sarabeth's blog then you are on the right track!
If you would like to start at the top of the hop, start here
Here's my creation for the hop and Fairy Fun Fridays valentine's challenge:

I've used the fab Lover Boy image, coloured with promarkers. I cut him out and mounted him on a pale lilac circle and mounted that onto a light brown blossom nestie. The papers are DCWV, with coredinations & papermania cardstock. The border was cut with the MS zig zag border punch and I layered a lilac spotty ribbon on top, and cut it slightly wider than the cardstock so that it would overlap the edges. The sentiment is a Pink Petticoat download printed onto the pale lilac cardstock. Added some card candy dots to finish.

This card seems tiny to me - I'm used to making 6x6, 5x7 and lately loads of 8x8, but this one is a teeny A2 sized that I've cut so that the fold is at the top, because I've never done one before and I fancied a change! I'm giving this one to my 7yr old son Morgan, who is very excited to be a junior Guest Designer this month at Fairy Fun Fridays. You can see his card here and he also has a special Kid's Candy on his blog if you know any children who'd like to win it, or who you'd like to win it for. There is also candy available on my blog, have a look HERE if you'd like to enter!
