Lili of the Valley, Anything but a square..valentine card

By the skin of my teeth or what!

I had hoped to get away from work a little early today, time I'm owed but it never happened so consequently I am very late with this post, nearly never made it!!

The challenge over at Lili of the Valley this week is 'Anything but a square.'
It took me a while to decide what to make when in a flash of inspiration I remembered I had some large scalloped circles I bought ages ago from The Glitter Pot, a quick slice later and I had my card base.... The stamp is one I bought from the recent release of LOTV stamps, coloured with lots and lots of copic markers. The next task was cut the mats for the card, I couldn't find a compass for love nor money so had to resort to drawing round the edge of a dinner plate, but I quite like the frilled effect on the edges.
The papers are by First Edition Paper, Desert Blooms from The Range, I bought recently, lots of gorgeous papers I can see these becoming a favourite of mine! The postman delivered a package from The Ribbon Girl today, which was beautifully wrapped and fast delivery, I only ordered on Monday evening! I used some of the seam binding and some dew drops that I stuck onto upside down card candy.

I am also entering the following challenges
Charisma Cardz - Valentine/Love
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Valentine - no pink or red.

Better get some dinner on now...
