Valentine Card Give Away

Hi everyone. I'm finally starting to feel better today, but my husband is complaining of a sore throat now! Uh oh! We really tried to be careful about me passing it on to him.
Well, today is card give away day. You have until noon tomorrow to post a comment on this card to be in the running to win the card and a matching envelope. Tomorrow I'll have random.org pick a number to determine the winner. I'll also include some heart confetti for you to put inside!

The card uses a cute little girl holding a heart. The image is from Squigglefly and is appropriately called Be My Valentine. It's also on sale for $2.00 right now! I added the words to the inside of the heart before I printed it out.



I colored with copic markers and used a white gel pen for a few highlights. I am so glad I discovered that you can erase white gel pen because it makes me less afraid to try adding highlights. I don't feel like I'm going to end up ruining the whole thing.
I covered the heart with glue after coloring and then sprinkled glitter over it for a lot of shine.



I'm so glad to hear from so many of you that you have enjoyed the videos. I've got another type of card I want to show you how to make on video. I just have to find the time to do it. It's a fun one though!

Thanks for looking, and have a happy hump day!

It's such a pretty Valentine's Day card and I would love to be in with a chance of winning it. I've not tried putting glue and then glitter over images yet so I might just have to give it a go. I seem to be learning so much on just looking at other peoples' blogs. Kym
