Love Always

I made this valentine using First Kiss from Karen's Doodles. The base of my card is white cardstock embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots) backed in red cardstock. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I punched a strip of pink cardstock using a lace heart border punch and added a red and white dotted ribbon to the top of it. I added the pink strip just below the image. I finished off the card by adding red rhinestone hearts to the top left corner of the image and the left side of the pink strip.
