Card Ideas Challenge - Valentine card and matching gift

Here's my creation for the Designed2Delight Card Ideas blog challenge - Images from the Attic and Matching card and gift. Well, I combined my gift and card and made a little extra in a removable bookmark...yum, chocolate and books what a great combination! Here's a picture of the bookmark and image...
I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and OMS. The sentiment is from doodlebug rub-ons (the heart is a "v" and "and" sign!).

Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. allsorts challenge blog - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
2. By The Cute And Girly - red + any other color
3. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - anything goes
4. CES challenges - red and romance
5. City Crafter Challenge Blog - word "love" or symbol of love (heart)
6. Cooking It Up With Katie - use something metal (the hook at the top of the bookmark), add a little brown (see my brown bear!), and 2 designer papers
7. Craft Us Crazy - anything goes
8. Craft Your Days Away Challenge - inspiration photo: I liked the colors
9. Crafty Calendar Challenge - Love
10. Crafty Sentiments - a bear on a card
11. Crazy 4 Challenges - Valentine's Day card
12. Creative Inspirations Challenge - valentine's day/love
13. Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Valentines
14. Do you Stack up - Red Hot
15. Double Dutch - Valentine's card/creation
16. Easy Craft Projects - Challenges - Love
17. Flourishes - Valentine
18. I Did it Creations Challenge - red
19. If The Shoe fits... Scrap It! - pink
20. Paper Crafting Journey - love theme
21. Paper Playtime - Digi Monday Anything goes
22. PaperPlay Challenges -  stamp it out
23. Papertake Weekly Challenge - anything goes + optional Flowers
24. Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - hearts a flutter
25. Really Reasonable Ribbon - pink, red, and white + ribbon
26. Sassy Studio Designs - use a heart
27. Saturday Challenge - Valentine
28. SEW MANY CHALLENGES - anything goes
29. Simon Says Challenge - love is in the air
30. Stamp Something - digi day
31. Stampin' for the Weekend - St. Valentine's Day
32. Try it on Tuesday - feel the lurve
33. Wild Orchid Challenges - love is

Can't wait to see your Valentine card/gift projects!
