A Special Valentine Surprise

Hi Everyone

Today I have a special Valentine "card" that I made.  I have been working on this for a little while - I couldn't make up my mind on the colour scheme but knew that I wanted non-traditional Valentine colours.  Here is the first look.

Not exactly a card, but I am pretty sure the recipient will appreciate it.  Everything is cut with my Cameo, the box itself is a file from SVG Cuts called Explosion Box Kit, all the embellishment on the outside are files from the Silhouette online store and the patterned paper is from Webster's Pages.

The fun happens with this card when you remove the lid - this is what you find...

This image was a freebie last week from Sassy Studio Designs, as soon as I saw her I fell in love :)  She is coloured with ProMarkers, and like I said I went with non-traditional Valentine colours just to mix it up a bit.

I love how the hearts just spring up randomly as the box sides fall down.  The hearts are attached to thin florists wire and taped to the back of the image.  With this image I tried my hand at dotting a background with the ProMarkers (sorry I can't remember what the technique is called) - I have to keep practicing.  I have decided to enter this into Dare to be Sassy Thursday challenge, the theme for which is 'Have a Heart', and also in I Love ProMarkers Challenge  'One for the Girls'.

Thanks for stopping by today.
