This was a 'new to me' technique. Thanks to Anita for creating this new fold, I thought her video was great, nice to hear her voice. I don't know why I always leap in and try something rather tricky without doing a simple version.
I was pawing through my wood mounted stamps and found this old Art Impressions wood mounted that I have never used. It's the Queen of Hearts....bingo! I don't have a lot of figure dies, like Anita's dancer, so I stamped her on a rather dubious but red gel print from stash, restamped on white and cut out her face, added some pink cheeks, Stickles and glitter pen to emphasize her, diecut her into a circle. I already had the Brusho heart cut, just added some blush metallic paper to the openings. My rocking base is just a large circle I trace and stenciled with the hearts with the DOx inks. More Stickles finished her off. Because the heart is large, it took a bit to figure out the balance but she works. I have no idea what I will do with this Valentine, maybe just keep her for decor. I'll do this again with simpler aspirations. Thanks again, Anita!
PS I thought about calling this card 'Your Two Cents Worth' since I used pennies.

I think it's a bit more than 2 cents worth lol, just a hint if you make another, try it with a stamp and cut the stamp out and try to let it go over the middle that's the fun of these rockers, but don't worry your card is fabulous and artsy and I'm sure you'll find a destination for it!!

This turned out great! I think Jen has the right idea, the rocker is her skirt and she has one of those great big Victorian collars behind her head. I though of Alice in Wonderland as soon as I saw this.

I really like the way you changed the back panel for a heart to match your absolutely fabulous Queen of Hearts. The Stickles are a perfect accent, and I also really like the way the background heart is sort of tiled.
