A little bit of Love!!!

I know it is early but I have made my valentines card for hubby. Firstly because it was a image sent to use for the ICS DT for this weeks challenge and secondly if I don't make it now he may not get one!!

I have used scrap papers to make the flowers and used as the background paper too. The image is a digi one from DZ Doodles our sponsers this week at ICS.
I have entered for the following challenge:

Scrap papers

Good morning to you all. A little dull and foggy here today. This card / tag was inspired by Jules who has given herself the challenge to use up scrap pieces of paper on her cards. So I set about making this card with that in mind. I only used scrap paper that I have in a box on my desk and some wrapping paper that I saved from a present I had back in November. This card and envelope were made for my niece's daughter for her 13th birthday. She loves to cook so decided as part of her present I would do up a bowl with ingredients in for her to make a sponge pudding (unfortunately forgot to take phot of present!!) but her is the card.

Many thanks for taking a look.
