Boy am I lucky, this is the best image for me...we celebrate our anniversary this month!
So this is how I designed my card for my wonderful husband Sandy. I used Derwent Inktense Pencils to color Cupid's hair and wings and Derwent Coloursoft Pencils to color the rest of the image. The colored image was placed in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged with pieces from a number of digikits. The composition was printed and adhered to a base card. I added adhesive pearls and a rose for embellishments.

Since it's not just Valentine's Day, for me...it's the day before my anniversary, I reserve the right to design two card with this lovely image.

So I cut out the original colored cupid image and layered her up using soft pads on a heart doily.  I covered a tall base card with a heart print scrapbook paper and adhered lace down the folded side. The Cuddlebug and some Sizzix die cuts and a couple of sticky pearls made the embellishing easy.
