Tilda's Valentine challenge!

Hello bloggy friends.
I hope this Sunday finds you well and happy?
Well, as it is Sunday that means there is another new challenge over at the Totally Tilda challenge blog.
Firstly though, I would just like to say thank you for all your wonderful entries on the last challenge.
It always makes it hard to choose a winner/top 3 but that's part of the fun!
Also, just before I get on to the new challenge I would just like to say a big warm hello to Helene who has joined our team.  I have worked with Helene before at Die Cut Dreams and let me tell you here work is awesome.  Looking forward to seeing your fabulous creations Helene!
So what are we going to tempt you with this time??
Well the new challenge is:
PINK AND RED VALENTINE
(You must use pink and red as the main colours on your card.  You can use splashes of other colours but to be in with a chance of winning the prize your main colour theme must be pink and red!)
Speaking of prizes, we are sponsored this time by the lovely Nikki
at
From now on I will be showing you a complete card to mark the beginning of the new challenge at Totally Tilda and then I will be making a new card for the Midway Reminder.  So, now you get two for the price of one!!  What a bargain!
So here is the project I made for the new challenge:
I was walking through Hobbycraft one day and spotted these red wooden hearts, just had to have one.  I have added some Magnolia papers (such fabulous quality papers to use!) to one half of the heart and added Cupid Tilda on top using silicone glue.
I also added three pink flat backed pearls top right.
On the red side of the heart I have used a Magnolia Doohickey doily (expensive but beautiful) and then added a pink flourish on top of the doily.

The sentiment is from the last Magnolia club kit. 
I then added a lace flower and popped a white rose with pink centre into the middle of it.

I'm quite pleased with how this came out, not my usual sort of thing but I'm glad I gave it a go.
