Cards for Men has that loving feeling

This time over at Cards for Men we want to see your Valentine's Cards.  Anything with a love theme will do so long as it's for a man/boy, of course.

Here's my DT card for the challenge which this week is sponsored by Praire Fairy.  I've always loved Roberta's images and particularly like this one called 'Roopid'.  Please take a look across at the main post where you'll find more wonderful cards and all the details of the challenge.  The prize up for grabs is 5 digi images of your choice.

I've used Bazzill basics as the base of my card which is 6"x6".  The image is coloured with Promarkers and die-cut using a fab die from Go Kreate.  I won a set recently in a candy run by Mandy over at Crafty Fox Cards and they're great.

The hearts are stickers from DCWV that I've had for ages and the button in the bottom right corner is a 'flatback' from Craftime.  I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Scrap-creations - red, black and white
A Spoonful Of Sugar - valentines
Stampavie & More - love
Sisterhood Of Crafters - anything goes (2nd entry)
Fab 'n' Funky - use a digi
