Be My Valentine!

My second card today is for the challenge at Come & Get It where the theme this week is very topical - ‘Hearts’. Please pop over to the DT’s Blogs to see what they have been up to.
I have had a couple of freebies from Saturated Canary for some time, but have shied away from colouring them because my hair colouring technique has not been up to much. However, I have been practising and although I have some way to go to get to the standard of many crafter’s out there, I was pleased enough with this card to share!
