Be Mine Valentine

I'm still working on Valentine cards, this one I think I'm going to enter into the home page contest on the Bellaholics group, I've never entered a card for the contest before but I do know that if your card is chosen its displayed on the front page of the Yahoo group for the month, so we'll see. This was such a fun card to create using rosy Bittybloom! I stamped one of the rosy images out and then used my new SU heart punch and punched out her hands and bouquet and then colored and pop dotted it over my full colored image. I used my Copics to color this image and then added Red Spica glitter pen on the roses and then added tiny silver gems to the centers. The image and scallop mat was then cut and embossed using my Nesties and pop dotted and added to the center of a heart that I cut out using my Coluzzle. The card base was embossed using the Cuttlebug embossing folder Heart Blocks and the Be Mine, ribbon and flower with gem were added to complete the card. Its hard to see from this picture but the cut out heart is actually a few shades darker than the red scallop mat around the image.

Can you believe that JoAnns and Michaels has all of their Easter stuff out already? I'm just getting into Valentines.
