Hanna's sketch for Valentine Tilda



I managed several challenges with this card - which is hardly suprising as it's Valentines day before long.

I decided, rather than go with the usual pink or red combination for a Valentine card I'd give purple/mauve a whirl - I think it works. I followed one of the amazingly talented Hanna's sketches. The image, Magnolia's Cupid Tilda, is coloured with Copics and edged with distress ink and the hearts are from Magnolia's winter collection. The DP is is by Rico designs and I use Basic Grey's flourish stamps around the edge, stamped and heat embossed using white powder. The pearl swirls are by Prima and the butterfly, flowers and lace are from my stash.


This is the fabulous sketch I used

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
