Be my Valentine Edward

Welcome to another Anya Ink Sunday! This week our challenge is to make something with a valentines theme. I thought this would be a great opportunity to get out my Edward stamp, I got him from The Stamp Spot a couple of weeks ago on sale (the sale is still on, go and grab a bargain, you know you want to) I figured a needed a guy stamp, and he is super cute and I LOVE his hair (please don't hate me but I have never seen a twilight movie or read any of the books, just bought him for the cuteness factor... sorry) I even stamped him and coloured him to use in next weeks challenge I got so excited about him, but changed my mind last night and went with another idea :) I'm a woman, I'm allowed to change my mind on a whim.
The DP is my minds eye, hugs and kisses (if you look closely you can see x's and o's)The pattern is a bit bigger than I would like but you still get the idea. I think I have finally used the last of this DP, i got 3 cards out of it :) the card stock is from my stash, ticket is a bizzy bec digi (link in side bar), string is from the supermarket, bargain!, and just the texture I need for male cards. Some bling from my stash and some gel pen doodling and... I made this with the idea of it being for a male, then thought perhaps I should have put a female on there, like the card was from me so the image should be a female, like a little me on the card, if that makes sense? then I thought too much about it and just ended up confusing myself so I stuck with the little guy on the guys card, perhaps he can symbolise the guy receiving the card... too... confusing... brain... hurts...
I did have a girly all coloured in and was going to put her on there with him like a couple, but when I cut her out I cut on the lines and Edward has a white border around him so it would have looked wrong, so after all that, I just left the card the way I had it, lol!

LMAO! Now I'm confused! I too thought Edward to be the perfect image for a valentine card. But should we have a female on the card if a male is receiving it? I wouldn't mind as your card is gorgeous either way!
