WWC 258 - Marsha's Challenge: All About Occasions

Friday is Valentine's Day so I had to create a card for that occasion.  Don't we all still give Valentines to our special someone(s)?

I've had this adorable Penny Black stamp set called Piece of My Heart for several years and love all the sweet images.  This year I decided to use these little hedgehogs which give the stamp set its name.   The real fun was in the colouring.  I used my coloured Derwent pencils along with Gamsol to blend the colours.  I love the results, don't you?

That lovely, lacy oval die-cut is another of my Gina Marie dies.  To finish up, I used another die to cut a bunch of tiny white hearts and adhered them to the top right and bottom left of the card, along with a few tiny silver heart sequins.

 I invite you to check out the awesome samples by the other Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I've linked this card up to the following challenges:
