J'adore 'Amore' at All Dressed Up

Good evening my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you had a fabulous weekend and that you spent some special time with your loved ones.
I had a quiet weekend - just me and my DH as Jack was spending some special time making memories with his girlfriend - young love - nothing like it :o)

So today I would like to share the special card I made for my Valentine - that also doubles as my DT make for the new challenge over at


I knew as soon as I saw this image - Amore - available from Wendy's Easy shop that it would be the perfect image for my Valentine card this year:  
I kept the layout and embellishments fairly simple - well it is for a man after all lol!!!!
Just a couple of bling hearts and a touch of Glamour Dust - which doesn't really show up on the photos but is sparkly IRL :o)
The gorgeous Design Papers are from Pink Petticoat 'Old Fashioned Girl' - unfortunately no longer available as Liz has now closed her boutique but they are my go to collection for Valentine and general Anniversary cards for the one I love.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the stunning inspiration from my new Dressy Girls DT buddies - you definitely won't be disappointed.

Looking forward to seeing your fabulous All Dressed Up makes too - don't forget the theme is always
