Valentine's Day Card/ High Hopes Challenge #250: For a Girl and MFTWSC212

High Hopes Challenge #250:For a Girl and 
Wednesday Sketch Challenge-Sketch 212


For my card today I combine two of my favorites challenge: High Hopes and MFT. 
This lovely Valentine's card is for my oldest daughter Katherine, she is my girly-girl. I'm planning to give to her next month for Valentine's Day!

To created this card I used the sketch from MFT and this beautiful stamp from High Hopes. What an awesome combination. First I stamped the little girl on the oval with Memento ink and color it with EK Success Earth Colors Pencils and Gamsol. I distress all the pattern paper with (Antique & Tea Dye) distress inks and also used my distress tool. I embellish her with some stickles, gems, and I did some dots on her overrall. This card measures 5x5. A happy accident I applied the stickles on her shirt and got some on the linen thread. Love how the linen thread looks with the glitter!!!

Here is a close up!
