Valentines without red or pink

Good morning, peeps! Well, that's the title of the challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge and, because I blooped with my first card and used the forbidden colours, here is my second attempt! Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Di's Digi Downloads and the image I've used is called 'Together Forever' and you'll find it on this page here. I thought it had so many possibilities, not just for Valentine's Day but for weddings, engagements or just for a general card. I coloured the image with Copics (no surprise there then!) and enhanced the shading with Prismas. The main DP is from a maker unknown and was given to me by my good friend, Alison so thanks for that, hun! It provided the colour scheme for the card. The central panel, that you can hardly see is a paper from Nitwits and the ribbon is from my stash. The flowers are, of course, from Wild Orchid Crafts. I do hope you'll join us at Fussy and Fancy for this challenge. If you're anything like me, you'll find it pretty challenging - I didn't realise how many of my DPs have red or pink in them! (Sounds like a good reason to shop to me!!) I'll show you the other card I made with this image another time since I don't want to confuse anyone with their challenge entry. I'm entering this card also into the Bunny Zoe's Challenge, 'Love is in the Air'. I'll be back again soon because we're well into the birthday season in this family. Take care and stay dry - it's raining cats and dogs here in Yorkshire!
