You Make My Heart Flutter

Good morning. Why is it that when you don't have to get up early you always wake up at the crack of dawn??? Jack broke up for half-term yesterday so I could have had a lie in but no chance I was wide awake and raring to go at 5am this morning :o(
So I thought I would turn a negative into a positive and use the time wisely and decided to make my Valentine's card for John :o)

Recently Krista (Saturated Canary) was offering this gorgeous image as a freebie - thank you so much - I LOVE it :o)
I immediately knew I wanted to team it with a sentiment I got from Birdscards here

Image coloured with the Limited Edition Spring 2012 Promarkers  - loving these soft colours.
Edges inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and a touch of Glamour Dust.

Design Paper - Free from Hot off the Press with Simply Cards and Papercrafts this month
Sentiment die cut with Spellbinders tag and threaded with Rose Pink seam binding and heart ribbon from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop

The image is so gorgeous and the Design Paper so beautiful too and the sentiment says it all - so I didn't think it needed anything else :o)
