Pile It On - To The One You Love

Happy Superbowl Sunday!
I'm sure you are getting in the mood for love with Valentines Day just around the corner.
Along with many other challenges the team at Pile It On would love to see your creations with the theme of "To The One You Love".
As you know the Pile It On philosophy is to add as many challenges as you can in the creation of your project and I've added the following (30!) to this card:

Cards for Men had a sketch I wanted to try with an option of Valentine/Love
Easy Craft Projects wanted a Valentine for a Man
Our Creative Corner wanted a Masculine Valentine
Rosie Dees had a Just For Men theme
Charisma said I Love You
Crazy 4 Challenges had a Be My Valentine theme
Craft wanted Love/Valentines
Double Dutch wanted Valentines
Creative Card Crew wanted Valentines
Stampin For The Weekend wanted Valentines
Dare U 2 Digi wants Hearts/Valentines (and a digi)
Pennys wanted Valentines/Love
Gingersnaps had a Romance theme
Bee Crafty wanted Romance
Stamp Something had a Love Something theme
Crafty Calendar wanted Love/Friendship with an option of Hearts
Raise The Bar wanted a Heart to Heart
Fun With Shapes want Hearts and Stripes
Digital Tuesday wanted a Different Fold
Tuesday Throwdown wanted Paper Piecing
Papertake had a "Love Actually" theme
The Tanda Teaser was to make something for a Loved One
Paper Play wanted Love Notes
Challenge Up Your Life wanted Valentines and Hearts
Fussy and Fancy wanted Hearts
Creative Craft had a Roses are Red theme
Simon Says has a photo inspiration of a Red Rose
Pixie Dust want a Decorative Border
Tellens Place wanted Tic Tac Toe and I chose Flowers, Punch and Bling
LaLa Lands wanted Hearts

I decided to make this card just for my hubby and chose this hilarious image from The Digi Shack who are having a super sale right now. I colored the image with a combo of Copic's and paper piecing (made super easy as you can print the image directly on to the paper).
The dp is Scrapworks "Love in Bloom" Stripes.
Hearts border punch is by Martha Stewart and the pearls are Queen and Co.

I made this into an easel card as it will stand up perfectly on my hubby's desk at work and everyone can see what a wonderful wife he has! LOL

I hope you've liked this one and I'd love to see you "Pile It On" this week with the challenge.
