My card is for today's F4A challenge to make a Valentine, and Birgit's MIX54 to use hearts on your card + two mixed media elements. I am also submitting it for the current SOS137 challenge, "Love Me Tender" Valentine cards.
For the Mix challenge, I used three inks, a glitter brush, watercolor pencils, die cuts and paper piecing. My sweet PI is paper pieced w/Webster's Pages paper, as well as, the printed panel is from that same paper collection. I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush on her bow, the heart on her shirt and all of the roses, but I couldn't get the sparkle to show in the picture. Drats.
Thanks for looking! :)

This is so cute and so sweet!! I love the papers and colors that you used. Your little girl looks darling the way you paper pieced her. Good job sneaking in the hearts - it took me a minute to find them. :>)
