Family Valentine!...

Sometimes you find the perfect image for a daughter and her son and daughter (who is a little princess!). I could use this image for years if I keep changing up the layout and embellishments!  LOL!

I chose the Basic Grey background layer and then pulled out the colors I wanted for my image.  A ticket stub punch for the corners, a ribbon, bow and brads complete the simple layout. As a finishing touch of bling, I used duo glue applied with a Calligraphy pen and gold foil for the crown.

This card should be eligible for the following
Basic Grey #86 - Love is in the Air
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Crafty Ribbon - Anything Goes with Ribbon
Broken Box #19 - Be my Valentine
Robyn's Fetish #145 - use three hearts

IMAGES:  The focal image is a freebie from Dearie Dolls
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is "Sweet Threads" from Basic Grey; base CS is stash
EMBELLISHMENTS: ribbon and corner brads are from stash; Duo Glue and gold foil.
INKS: The image was printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics.

May you color with abandon, create wildly
and always, always, make what amuses you!
