Cutie Pies

Well January is drawing to a close already & February has almost crept in. So what lies ahead for us - Hearts, Pancakes & probably a lot more rain :-( So here is the 1st of my Valentine's Cards.

The layout is from this fortnight's Sketch N Stash challenge & I have to say I love this sketch. I have coloured this image from The ClipArt Fairy with Promarkers & layered onto some lovely vellum I found stashed in a drawer. I edged with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. The papers are Prima Botannical & Centura Pearl. I added 3 roses & the die flourish is from Pinflair. Here is a closer look at the image.

I have taken the sketch through the inside. Next time I think I will probably leave the lace & daisy braid trim off the inside as it has made the card quite bulky. I added lace down the spine of the card too. The hearts are from the Sizzix Lacy Heart Die x Clare x
