A new Tilda for Valentine's

I have a Valentine in the works for my sweetie (but he doesn't know it's for him!). I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures -- I had to crop and straighten them in order to get them ready to post.

This lovely Tilda is Dancing Tilda from (I think) the Fairytale Collection. Simon Says Stamp is selling it on eBay (my apologies to the Magnolia store, but I couldn't find it there).

The pink flourish at the bottom came from a Christmas present: the Cricut Home Accents Solutions cartridge. The white cloud-like background was also cut using a Cricut cartridge.

I embossed the pink paper using a Sizzix Texturez plate. I added some Stickles to the Prima roses, and a Martha Stewart rhinestone to Tilda's crown. Whew! And that's just the front!

Inside I layered pink and white cardstock and topped it off with some pink lace.

I'm quite pleased with how the card came out, and so I'm making it my first challenge card! I'm entering it in Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Something New Plus Ribbon" Challenge.

Update: I have also decided to enter it in Paper Sundaes' Something New challenge and Creative Inspirations' Something New challenge. You can't win if you don't compete, right?
