More love in February

It's the Big Day on Friday and for me that means celebrating 34 years since my Hb and I got engaged. Yes we are quite soppy old romantics and still send cards and often a little box of choccies appears..well no one needs much of an excuse for that do they?

I am the Guest Designer today for the lovely Nikky of Bunny Zoe's card challenge. A new theme starts for the next month and yes you guessed's Love. This does not have to be a Valentine's card but obviously your creation needs to show plenty of love in it. For my card I was able to choose a stamp from her online shop Bunny Zoe's. Nikky has an amazing range and after lots of oohing and aahhing I chose a Bildmalarna stamp called Alva Believe which is available here. I love her and I decided to colour her up for the first time with blonde hair with my Promarkers as this is a card for my neice's birthday. She loves fairies and  lots of bling (and she is 30!)

I made a stepper card, here it is;
and here is that amazing stamp in close up
I used my new Cheery Lynn heart doily die to create a frame around her and yes I did fussy cut her out. I also made another Cheery Lynn exotic butterfly with my distress ink and card. The paper is a download. The birthday sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, one of their so useful round sentiments and I added some mulberry roses and a few more embellies for some extra bling.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
