SoftPencil Challenge 14

I'd like to show you my entry for this week's Softpencil challenge. This week we were to create a card using red, olive green and cream/ivory. I used two of Elizabeth's new Valentine digis, "You're My Valentine" and "A Lovely Couple". I started out with one idea in mind but the card kept changing. If I did not know better, I would think sometimes they develop their own character in the creation process.
My card stock and polka dot design paper is from SU. My other design paper is from my stash. I created my hearts with a Nestability set and my "flower" was created with a Martha Stewart punch and decorated with a Prima Stud.
Copic markers were my choice for coloring using: R21, R37, YR21, Y17, Y0000, YG03, YG63, YG67, , E35, E33, E31, E00, R20 and C1. I did use some SU chalk to color the "You're My Valentine" heart.
Thanks for visiting!
