Paper Pro's - February Challenge - Love

Its time for a Papers pro challenge than this month it was me who was going to choose the theme and I kept it real simple... LOVE.  The Paper Pros could interpret that how they wished.

Here is my card and it was just a mass of me wanting to play with the new Karen Burniston dies from KB Riley and using lots of different sets to make this cute card.

I made this romantic card with a hint of Game of Thrones. (GoT I LOVE)
Alas I failed with my styling of "John Snow" but I made my Khaleesi inspired princess, a castle, a map paper and inside a hint of the House Stark Flag and Khaleesi's fallen dragon "Viserion" inside with an ice covered castle. "Winter is coming"

Happily Ever After adorns the inside, Viserion holds a heart, will he
forever love his "Mother of Dragons"?  I guess we have a long time
to wait to find out!

So this card merges two things I love, card making with Karen's dies and Game of Thrones.    It will also double up as Darren's Valentines card :)

I will link up below the items I have used for this challenge, most of these dies are in stock at Crafts U Love.

Click links below to see what the ladies have been up to.  
Some may not be taking part in the Paper Pros challenge but click on over anyway as I am sure they have some beautiful samples.

CARD MAKING - Karen Burniston - Spinner Square Card - Valentines

Hi Friends
I am here today with my first card of the new 2018 release from Karen Burniston. Crafts U Love have them in stock NOW.  HERE

The first set I was keen on using was the Spinner Square die set, this is such a fabulous mechanism and can be used for so many things and decorated accordingly.  I happened to buy some pink card from work the other day so I just grabbed that with no card in mind.  Die cut the parts and went about the assembly.  Karen Burniston always supplies assembly videos for her dies.  After all they are hardly standard die cuts!  Of course you are going to need help.  So here is the link for the Spinner Square assembly instructions. 

On the front I decorated it with
The Luv Ya stamp was from my stash and the face
on the sun also a stamp from stash (Peachy Keen)

Inside I have gone to town with the Tropical Scene and Sea Animals 1037

The shark hides behind the square panel and when opened swings out, this can be used for so many things.  Endless ideas!

So I'd not usually use pink for the sky but I think for Valentines it will pass and I do love Turquoise and Pink together.

I will add a punny wording onto the panel with the crab.  
Any ideas greatfully received!  And if I pick your idea for my card
I will sort out a little crafty prize which will include some lovely papers
and a surprise so get commenting on my post.  Will post WORLDWIDE.

I have classes coming up using Karen's dies, including the Square Spinner (card will be decorated different to this one) at Crafts U Love in Charlwood in Surrey.  To look at details click HERE
