SC258 I Only Have Eyes For You

Happy Thursday!!! I just love making cards for Valentine's Day- it is my favorite holiday. The colors are so pretty and the whole day is dedicated to telling the special people in your life how much you love them!!

This card came together backwards. I had first colored my image last night and then tonight found a layout that I wanted to use, an old SCS sketch, SC258.

I started with a card base of SU Creamy Caramel, Whisper White and Pretty In Pink. I embossed the pink layer with my Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder. My DP is Basic Grey's Bittersweet which I knew would go perfectly after I had colored her.

My image is by The Greeting Farm, and she is Savannah Anya. Unfortunately I think she has been retired so I'm lucky my good pal Jodi (stampingalatte) gave me a few images. I colored her with my copics. My sentiment comes from paper Pretties and I thought it was just right for two reasons: 1. it was cute for Valentine's Day 2. look at the size of her eyes, they are so big!

I used white brads, pretty in pink ribbon and white ribbon for my accessories and then took my pink copic and added dots to the corner of my image layer just to fill up the white space.
