…Big Hugs & Kisses

Ok...are you getting sick of seeing all of these Valentine’s Day cards?  I hope not, because I have another one today!  LOL!  I’m using one of the new digital images from the Whimsie Doodles called “Penguin Hugs”…HOW CUTE IS HE???

I printed this sweet little bird in Black Ink onto White Cardstock, and then colored it with Copic Sketch Markers.  I decided to pair up the finished images from patterned papers from the Pretty Please paper pack from My Mind’s Eye along with some Eggplant, Teal, and Spring Moss Cardstock.  I am totally into Stickles again for some reason, so I added some Crystal Stickles to the his personal iceberg, and placed the sentiment on an altered toothpick.  I added a Scalloped Edge Punch border to the dotted patterned paper panel, then added some stitching to the same panel as well.  I added some Paper Piercing, a Punched Heart, and Punched Flower with a Silver Brad center to the striped panel.  After adding some Teal Rhinestones and a ton of Dimensionals the card was complete!  So…what do you think?

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow with a special By LORi Designs’ card.  Until then…
