Vintage Valentine Kids

     When I found this darling image in my collection from TLC Creations, I just knew I had to use it for a Valentine card this year.  I don't even know how long I've had it but I've never used it so the money for that purchase has gone to waste until now.  :-D  I can't believe I went that long without using it as much as I love vintage images!

     I decided that I really liked the black and white of the pencil sketch image so I colored only the heart and the sentiment with ProMarkers and gel ink.  I die cut the image and the red mat for it with dies from on of my earliest sets by Spellbinders.  I layered those together and then started looking for some dp.

     I'm a person who saves scraps of this and that, and in my stash I had a paper bag with an old newsprint pattern which had held one of my craft purchases who knows how long ago.  I cut a scrap of it and added it to dark brown CS.

     I added a brown doily to one side, then layered on the image piece.  I dug out the red, polka dot ribbon, tied a bow, and trimmed another strip of it to fit the card front.  Fairly CAS design which looks more complex than it is.
