cupid valentines card

Hiya everyone, 
 I haven't been around much this week, as I slipped on ice 10 days ago and broke my left leg and dislocated my foot. I have had surgery which resulted in a metal plate, six screws and a metal rod in my ankle. 

I will now need to take six months off work to recover, as the metal rod is being removed in a few months (more surgery) and then I will need months of intensive physiotherapy too. 
But I am staying positive and even managing to get a little crafting done. I cant weight bear on my leg, but with the help of my lovely hubby, we managed to re-organise my craft room, so that I can get my wheel chair around and I made this card using one of my new Tilda stamps, she is called my valentine.

Sorry the pictures aren't too good, I didn't use my usual area for taking the photos, as I cant get my wheel chair in there.

Isnt she a cutie!
I made a large tag shaped card and covered the front with a Magnolia butterfly paper and I used some maja basics for the scalloped oval around the image.

She is coloured with Copics and the ribbons, distressed wooden heart button and beautiful roses are all from the ribbon girl. 

Please pop by Sunday, as the new challenge for Magnolia Mania Challenge begins, thank goodness I made that card in advance he he!
