Saturated Canary Polka Dot Valentines

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a Valentines card I made for my friend Adele. We always swap Valentines presents as friends because it means we get a chance to show each other we care and whatever the situation is then we both look forward to each others parcel! :-)
I used a Saturated Canary image I love coloured with Promarkers and Copics and used my favourite Echo Park 'Yours Truly' collection with black cardstock and American Crafts polka dot ribbon.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
ATCs and Cards with Attitude: Be my Valentine
Card Crafters Circle: Paint the town Red
CAS-ual Fridays: Black and White plus One
Dilly Beans: Black and Red
Patties Creations: Valentines Day
Freshly Brewed Designs: Hearts and Dots
Ladybug Designs: Valentines Day/Love
The Paper Shelter: Be My Valentine

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)
