CUTE CARD THURSDAY Challenge 45

I have made several Valentine cards already this year, so how about one more for the Cute Card Thursday current challenge which is Valentines! Of course i only have one hearthrob that will require a card, so the others will go to a local Charity shop once my children have picked one for their significant others :)
I was trying something using my Nestabilities for this card and although it worked reasonably well, the card is very 'dinky' at only 3.75 inches square, but a perfect size for this cute little image!
This Penny Black image entitled 'Crush' has been stamped onto some fabulous card that i found at the show on Sunday. It's fabulous because although it looks like regular white card it does not 'fur' up when you use watercolouring, it's terrific quality 300gsm! and allowed me to colour in my normal fashion with Distress inks and unlike watercolour card it is a lovely crisp bright white! My bumper pack of 100 sheets cost me...............£5.00!!!! this is the stand i bought it from, but you may have to e-mail as i can't see it listed on their site!

I used some more of my 'Bittersweet' papers and some Adornit tiny alpha stickers, the polka dot ribbon is from my stash......... Isn't he cute?
