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'

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.
