Valentine Ragdoll

     Another Friday, another challenge at QKR Stampede and, as always, we have a theme of "Anything Goes."  I've been working on a few Valentine cards and this darling image. "Be My Valentine," worked perfectly.  The sentiment is actually part of the image.

I started with the colors from House of Cards.

Image result for design seeds kiss

     I colored with a combination of ProMarkers and colored pencils, then did an out-of-the-box cut with a square die from Lawn Fawn.  I found a scrap of burgundy CS which I used for the card front and I added mulberry paper to each end of the card front.

     That was another scrap and I didn't have enough of it to do a long strip so I cut it into two small pieces and added one piece to each side of the image.  Once that was done, I 'feathered' the edges of the mulberry and then added the image to the card front.

     I tied one of my little hand-sewn bows to one side and called it finished.
