Good Morning...

I hope you are all enjoying a happy Valentine's weekend...I am...and I'm giving nothing more away than that! 

Today's card is made with a digi stamp from lovely Tiddly Inks -'fluttering by to say hi'.  I printed the image direct to a sheet of Make it Colour Blending Card with a butterfly quote I found on the internet.  I coloured the image with copic markers, (and also tried a new technique, by using a Prisma pencil to add some texture to the hair).  I embossed the edge of the card with a tattered lace embossing folder.  Finally, I added some twine, and a charm from The Ribbon Girl, raided my trinket box for the resin flower, heart shaped and pearl buttons and there we have
