My Pretty Valentine!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner...have you thought of yours yet?
I actually do not know who I will give this card to...yet. I love the image from SU! and I wanted to use it in a soft way, so i stamped it first and then used colored pencils to color it in. The paper colors look brighter in the photo, but are actually more muted. All of the paper is also SU! I chose to use the yellow and purple combo. I love these two colors together especially when they are soft and not vibrant.
I used a pair of deco scissors to cut the purple paper out around the yellow floral image. Also used one of my SU punches to get my purple strip that runs towards the bottom of the card. (i suppose I should know the names of all my tools, but I don't! lol)

I then used a really cute red button as an accent.
Well, thanks for stopping by...and don't forget your valentine!

I like this little girl stamp. It reminds me of when I was little, a Little Golden Book character or something. I like how you don't always use "traditional" color schemes for your holiday cards. Good job
