Valentine wonders . . .

Sometimes I really wonder WHY we crafters work so hard on choosing our background papers, as then we just go ahead and cover up the major portion of it, anyhow, like I've done here -- it just peeks out a little dab here and there!   I did enjoy coloring this newer image I got from Sherri Baldy of My Besties -- is she not cute?   That's scalloped, dotted swiss ribbon at the bottom, and I've tucked a couple doilies behind my image, added pink pearls at the upper corner, used foliage die cuts behind my flowers, and then attached a couple butterflies to finish up my creation.  I sure do hope you like "pinks", as it looks like I've covered all the shades of it.

  7. I hear you, girlfriend. I spend so long picking out papers to go with my image, or vice versa, and then cover so much of it up with flowers, ribbons, rhinestones, and half of my craft room. But this paper is adorable and it goes GREAT with the image and theme. So even though so much is covered up, it still shows! This is another wonderful Sherri Baldy image and you've got a knack for picking the cutest images! Beautiful card and you can never have too much pink! XXOO
