A Big Bunch Of Love - Valentine's Day Card

I made this Valentine's Day card for my husband... shhhh.... don't tell!  :)

I'm also entering it into a few challenges.  The first is The Greeting Farm's {FARM FRESH CHALLENGE BLOG} monthly retro contest.  The theme this month is "Lucky In Love".

The second challenge is at {ANYONE FOR ANYA} with the theme of "Bling It On!".  Glittery bling?  You betcha!

The third is {STAMPTACULAR SUNDAY CHALLENGE} #148 with the theme of "Seeing SPOTS".
I thought that little "Ruby" and "Oh Boy! Ian" needed to show the world how much they were in love.  What's that?  You didn't know?  Oh yes, Ian is completely head-over-heels in love with Ruby and has been for some time.  How could he not be?  Look how sweet she is!

I hear they planned a sack-lunch picnic at the school playground on February 14th.  Perhaps a first kiss is in order?  A peck on the cheek, to be sure.  I mean, they are children.  :)

I colored these little guys with Copics and cut them out with Nestabilities circles and scalloped circles.  The sentiment stamp is from Penny Black. The DP is from Recollections, the card stock is from American Crafts. The ribbon, bakers twine and flowers are from my stash.  I used red gems in Ruby's hair and on the card corner. It's hard to see in the photos, but I added Star Dust Stickles to their clothes and to the paper flowers for some extra *bling*.  It definitely sparkles!
