Valentine Surprise

I’m blogging up a storm this morning…I think the coffee has cut in!!! Here’s another Valentine’s card, made with another image that got buried in my files, as I kept intending to use it.  I’ve had this sweet Valentine girl for ages and ages, and, while I know it’s a Whoopsi Daisy design, I can’t tell you anything more about it!! I colored this little one up with my SN and Copic markers, adding a few dots on the chocolate box (or card?) with white gel pen.  I found a scrap of the right pink to mat her with, and cut the edges with edging scissors (I’m digging deep in my supplies, LOL), then dotted the edges to coordinate with the image.  As I was rummaging through stuff, I also found the striped DP scrap that I used as a background.  The heart shaped doily and the chipboard hearts were also “I forgot I had this” items.  I doctored the chipboard hearts up, one by embossing with white and adding some pink dots to, and the other by coating in red glitter.  I arranged everything with a strip of sheer ribbon and a bow, and used a piece of red glitter paper for matting.  With all the forgotten supplies and the old fashioned image, this card is a blast from the past 🙂
