LOVE is everywhere...

Guess who I found hiding. . .Miko from TGF's Roll Call Kit. Don't you think she's the perfect cutie for a valentine card?  This week at Club Anya's Mystery Monday is a gorgeous card by Linapyssel! Here's my version of the fun layout. . .

Using one of my favorite color combos, pink and green, I colored Miko in copics and just gave her a slight shimmer on her dress and bows with Sakura clear stardust pen. The heart and key punch is from Martha Stewart, perfect for the journal paper called Love Letters from Little Yellow Bicycle. Used a strip of hearts from Basic Grey's Olivia papers, pink cardstock is embossed with a cuttlebug folder, background cardstock is randomly stamped with AmyR's sentiment set, and the hearts and stars banner is a border stamp from Recollections (found at Michael's).
Here's a little tip for those who don't have many colors of floss or baker's twine. . .I used a kraft colored hemp cord and inked it with green chalk inkpad. Now I have the perfect twine to tie my buttons!
