I've another Blog Candy Give Away
Remember the €30.00 decoupage goody bag, that I was going to add to the kits last week, well I didn't get enough comments. 
So It's up for grabs this week
What you have to do is Design a Valentine's Day Card

Competition closed Thurday the 9th.
Everyone who enters will be entered into the draw, and I have a few kits left from my last class, so an extra few prizes up for grabs.
This is open to everyone who views my blog
And I will post the prize world wide.

Good Luck

I used Tim Holtz Milled lavendar Distress Ink around the card edge and stamped a few hearts in the back ground.
The swirl stamps are by Artemio. I stamped on the edge of the card and then cut around it.
The top edge is accentuated by Berry Fizz glitter.
Hearts are Nellie Snellen Dies.
I finished it with some peel-offs and Stickles.
