Hugs and Kisses

With Valentine's just around the corner I am making lots of Valentine cards.  This one is Hugs and Kisses from Saturated Canary by Krista Smith.  She is such a cutie.  I colored her up with my Copic Sketch markers.  Here is a close up of her.

My card recipe is pretty simple really.  I used SU Raspberry Ripple as my card base and mats.  And also on the corner die cut.  I used SU Summer Starfruit for the leaves of the flowers.  My DP is Beloved 6x6 paper pad by Fancy Pants.  I just love this pad.  Lots of good valentine paper in it and some that could be used anytime.  I used SB Oval and Scallop Oval die cuts to frame my image.  Then keeping with the shape, I used SU Oval and Scallop Oval to punch out my sentiment and frame it.  My sentiment comes from SU PS I Love You stamp set.  Then I used La La Land Crafts Corner Filigree die cut to put in the top corner of my card.  My flowers are dark red felt roses from K & Co.  And the leaves are cut with Sizzix Leaves w/Branches die cut.  The last finishing touch are red and pink heart buttons from my stash tied with red and white twine from The Twinery.

I used these Copic Sketch Markers:
B00, C00, C1, C3, C5, E000, E00, E01, E42, E43, E50, E51, E53, R20, R22, R27, R29, R81, R83, R85, YG21
