New ROP / BNW Challenge Starting Today - Be My Valentine!

Hello and Happy Monday! It's time for another Roses on Paper / Belles 'n Whistles Challenge. This time it's me challenging you ... with a Valentine's theme. Sure what else ...with Valentine around the corner  :-D
I want you to create a Valentines card and optional I have made a sketch that you can use if you like. But it's not required for qualifying for the prize drawing. For all the details on the challenge and what great prize Summer picked again this time check out our Challenge Blog. I hope you come and play with us! Looking forward to all of your wonderful creations!

This card matches also the ongoing challenge over at Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog and is my entry there.

Card details:
I used Magnolias Cozy Tilda and sat her in this beautiful flourish heart oval from Alota Stamps. I colored her with my Copics. The heart stamp used on the inside is from Magnolia's last years Valentine collection as is the sentiment. I airbrushed around the image and on the inside of the card. Papers are from Fancy Pants (Vintage Valentine) and Bazill (CS). I distressed the papers using my Tim Holtz distressing tool and distress ink (Tea Dye). Flowers are from Prima and Punches used are from M.S. Decorated with half-pearls, pearl swirls and set some highlights with Diamond Stickles.




 Copics used
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair & Shoes: E31, E25, E29
Jumpsuit: E30, E31, E33, E34, E35 - YG93, YG95, YG99
