Edwin & Tilda Happy Valentine's Day Card and thank you Kim

Happy Sunday everyone!! I've been so behind over the new year and didn't have much time doing any New year card. Now that I am going to try to get ahead, so I am going to start doing more Valentine's card before February. Yesterday night, I have a quite day, my hubby and daughter went out to badminton at night time. I had a very lovely evening on my own and was able to do a Tilda & Edwin Valentine's card using the sketch from Friday Sketchers #136. I am also using this card for other challenges as well (Please scroll down to the bottom of this post for the challenges info).

Here is my finished card. This cute Tilda and Edwin Dancing stamp is from Magnolia-licious. I also wanted to take this post opportunity to thank my blogging friend KIM YU. Kim is so kind and sent me a bunch of sweet Prima flowers and some other goodies. All the flowers on this card are from part of Kim's goodies :o) I know I am a bit odd sometimes, but I like to do things a bit differently. For this card, instead of using the traditional Valentine's color, I also used some other non-traditional colors. Hopefully you like what I prepared for you today.

Here is a closer view of this lovely image and a closer view on the left for the beautiful flowers I received from KIM.
