Valentine's chocolates

Well, who would have thought, but we are already on the better side of January. Time flies when you are freezing your bottom off, that's what they say, right? From a cardmaker's point of view, after the big push for Christmas, there's a month and a half until the hearts and pink stuff come out for the chocolate holiday. I'm not a huge fan of V-day, but when I saw Stella I thought finally someone who understands how I feel about Valentine's. And I bet my bottom one of my best friends feels the same way, which is why I made her this card. This digi is actually part of a bunch I won a while ago over at the Bugaboo challenge, I was like a kid in a candy store picking my prize digis.

I coloured the image with Copics, and inked the edges with distress ink. I matted the digi onto pink cardstock with an edge punched with my heart border punch and inked around the edges of the pink cardstock. For the background I used a heart pattern paper from Stampin' Up which was again matted onto pink card.

I am linking up with the following challenges:
