Tilda with hearts

Hello lovely people,

I always enjoy my Wednesdays off work and usually manage quite a bit of crafty time.

Today the mood took me to do a CAS design and practice my colouring, plus with Valentine's Day coming up I thought I'd do a little love-themed card.

I stretched myself a bit with this image since I really haven't mastered wavy/curly hair yet...ok, I know, that's what practice is for!

Card recipe;
