Penny Black Valentine

Howdy peeps.
Yet another dreary day pouring with rain.
Apparently it is now the wettest Winter the UK has had in over 250 years.
Looking at my poor flooded back garden I can totally believe it.

Today I have a Valentines card that will be given to my hubster.
The die cut is by Marriane, just love this one.
I have used the umbrella couple from Penny Blacks 'Mimi's Many Loves' as it is very fitting given all the rain and means I can enter it into the Penny Black challenge.
For this month we have to make it sparkle so I have added lots of iridescent  glitter to the swirls, heart and butterfly.
I have coloured the umbrella couple using promarkers.

I am entering this into the following challenges...

Penny Black and More - Make it sparkle
Word play Saturday - Swirls
Bunny Zoes - Hearts/Love
Papertake Weekly - With a heart
Passion for promarkers - Have a heart
Divas by Design - With Love
FabNFunky - Love/Valentine 
Cuttlebug Mania - Red
Crafters cafe - Hearts 
The Paper Shelter - Be my Valentine


  1. I do like these colours for a Valentines card Julie, I am not sure why we always feel they have to be red ? And this is so fitting for a guy as well.

    Well flooded here as well, paddocks under water, garden paths under water, but the Ark is finished so we are ready for whatever is yet to come.

    Thanks so much for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge.
