Surprise Sweetie at Cupcake Inspirations

Happy Valentines day!

Hope you all have a fabulous day.

A few weeks ago I got an email from Naki of Cupcake Inspirations asking if I would like to be a 'Surprise Sweetie' for thier challenge today. Naturally I said yes and feel very honoured that I was asked.

The theme of the challenge is 'Love'. Perfect for today!

Here is my card:

And here is the graphic to inspire you:

I picked out the colours and the hearts to create my card.

My sentiment stamps are from STAMPlorations and they are sponsoring this challenge.

I actually made this card using 3 of their challenges this month:

CAS challenge-anything goes with red
Sketch Challenge-my layout is based on the sketch
Monthly challenge-stamps and triplets-I have used 3 stamplorations sentiments and 3 clusters of hearts (Uniko)

Thank you Cupcake Inspirations for asking me to be your 'Surprise Sweetie'. To see the fabulous DT cards, take a look here.
