GCK - Be Mine, Valentine

Welcome to Day 4 of my Greeting Card Kids Series!
This is the LAST one....(yay, they say!)

GCK #4 - Be Mine, Valentine

I really like this one. A simple design, yes. I now see the angle on this makes the lace look funny on one side, but oh well.  Yup, handmade 'lace' if you want to call it that.  It was really quite fun to finally try this technique.

The main image is watercolored using my SU markers and aquapainter, the little white petticoat showing under her dress dressed up with liquid applique.  I punched out a strip of Poppy Parade cs with our Eyelet Border punch. Ran it through the crimper, then adhered it to the back of the circle.  The paper I used is called "Pawsitively Prints II", and I think this particular sheet is just perfect for this card! :)

Well, I suppose that is all.  Hope you've enjoyed my series...
Dare I ask what you think? :)
