Love hearts

This is the first card I've made in nearly a week! I must be slipping! I did a couple of digi LOs, but nothing with actual paper etc since last Monday.

This card is for the sketch for Lord have mercy 59:

It's not surprising that atm there are a host of challenges with a Valentine or love theme - in fact, if I were to make a separate card for each challenge, I'd have more than enough for the rest of my life time!

So my card is also for:

Pile it on 5: 'to the one I love' - and 'Pile it on' encourages us to link with as many challenges as possible (easy this week!)
Cute Daisy May: 'oh sweet Valentine' - pink and neutral
Double Dutch 36: 'be my Valentine'
Fiskarettes Monday challenge: 'use a punch' - Fiskars flowers corner punch
Pixie dust studio 7: 'decorative border' - the flowers corner punch
Pink Elephant 52: 'all about pink'
Pollycraft 33: 'things with wings' - butterflies
Crafty creations 53: 'wings'
Flutter by Wednesday 95: 'open' - include butterfly, fairy or angel
Sophisticat 20: 'love'
Creative card crew 44: 'Valentine's'
Res-Q 31: 'check up time - do an inventory check up' - things you haven't used for a long time - the butterflies
La-la land 24: 'hearts'
Penny's challenges: 'Valentine/love
Papertake weekly: 'love actually'
Tanda teaser 132: 'for a loved one'
Charisma cardz 51: 'I love you'
C.R.A.F.T. 36 'love/Valentine'
Lili of the valley 46: 'Valentines'
Another for Dare U 2 digi 30: 'hearts/Valentine' - I've used a digi image from 'Sew many', coloured with copics
Another for Fussy & fancy 3: 'hearts'
Humble pie: 'love theme'
Raise the bar 4: 'heart to heart talk'
Another for Bee crafty 23: 'romance' - it includes a digi image
Challenge your life 13: ' Valentine including hearts'
Crazy 4 challenges 23: 'be my Valentine'
By the cute and girly: 'love
Crafty Calendar 5: 'love and friendship' - optional extra: hearts

I'm not sure why the scan looks more lilac than pink, because irl the colours are definitely shades of pink. The satin butterflies have an iridescent sheen that looks paler or darker according to how the light catches them.

The papers are from my offcuts box.
