My Artistic Adventures Challenge #1: Love or Valentines

Hello Friends!!
Welcome to the First 
"My Artistic Adventures Challenge"
**Our First Challenge Theme is Valentines or Love
using elements from one of my many Digital Collage Sheets.**

Create any tangible item, Card, tag, ATC, Layout, altered art piece, Banner, pretty much anything you can come up with that is tangible.

(Sorry no digital entrees) 
and make sure you follow the theme and use some elements from one of my digital sheets.
It doesn't have to be a sheet from my Valentine's Section, you can use any of my sheets as long as we can see that you are following the theme.

You will want to check out the RULES page here.
(I am sure the rules may evolve over time...but I will let you know).

If you haven't any of my Collage sheets...  I am offering a 
15% off of a $5.00 or more sale, you just need to use the

I can't wait to share with you the
