CA&F Monday Mania with... Me!

Jessica made my month and asked me to come up with a challenge for Monday Mania & Club Anya and Friends this week and I immediately thought of a Valentine's Challenge...with a twist... absolutely NO pink or red!

Here's my card, I switched out the heads of Guy Ian (that just sounds wrong, doesn't it?) and left off Miss Anya's long hair because in an alternate cartoon universe this is supposed to be my husband and I, but he doesn't wear hats and I have short hair.  Oh and I don't have the perfect cartoon body with awesome coordinated outfits either, lol!

****Don't forget to check out my blog candy HERE (open until 2/14)!****

TGF Stamps - Miss Anya, Guy Ian
Cuttlebug folder - Hearts
Computer generated sentiment - Altast Greeting font
Martha Stewart edge punch
White heart and silver eyelets

Girl, this challenge is awesome and I loved, loved, loved it. I got to use my fav color purple. Woohoo. Your card is just fantastic. They make such a cute pair. Love the embossing, the pretty border punch and your gorgeous coloring. You rock girlfriend.
