more inspiration...

You still have time to whip up a card for Valentines Day!
As promised, here is another of mine to inspire you.
The base of this card is actually one from our last Technique Thursday class. All I have done is added the cute little girl from Greeting Card Kids and a valentine greeting.
For those who were not at the class we stamped with a background stamp, "debossed" the background image with Elegant Lines embossing folder, then brought out the debossing with sponged-on inks.
Notice the dress and hair bow on the girl is paper pieced. Very cute. If you would like a tutorial on paper piecing let me know!
I've coloured in the rest of the image using my Classic inks and an Aqua Painter brush.
She is actually a digital image, printed out on cardstock, coloured, paper pieced, then applied to the card. Greeting Card Kids is also available in a rubber stamp set.
The greeting is the same as I have used on this morning's post - also digital.
And, last I wrapped it up with Cherry Cobbler seam binding.

Happy valentines day!!!
