Tuesday Throwdown #82 - Charms

I made this card for the Tuesday Throwdown #82 challenge to add a charm to your card. I also used the SSS142 sketch with a spin to make a non-traditional Valentine. With the colors of purple and green, I'm sure this can be considered non-traditional ;)
I'm using a SNSS digi image and sentiment for my card, along with some polka dot dsp from Recollections. I matted the panels with PTI new leaf card stock and added some matching green ribbon. The key charm is from 7Gypsies, and the purple ribbon I've had forever. The purple twine came from a now-closed online store (stampersdream) and the mint green background was embossed with the seeing spots ef by CB. I used Copics to color the image.
If you're looking for the C4C34 challenge, it's right here, or one post below this one.
Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday, and thanks for stopping by!
