Lucy's Flower--Valentine/Love

For Valentine's Day this year my wonderful hubby bought me 5 packages of Spectrum Noir pens.  I've been wanting them for a while now but just never felt ready to spend that much money on markers. If your a regular to my blog than you know that I almost always use Crayola and Prisma colored pencils as my coloring medium. So I got to play around with them for my card for this week's challenge at 2 Sisters and I have to say that I LOVE THEM!!! I can't wait to sit down and play with them again and of course I am definitely willing and ready to purchase some more of the sets. Anyway.... this week at 2 Sisters our theme is Valentines/Love.  We are sponsored one final time by The Digi Garden. I love Jacqui's images. They are so adorable and so much fun to play with. What an amazing artist she was.  Jacqui you will be missed. 

  The image I used is called Lucy's Flower. 

To create my card I started with a white card base and covered the front with a blue floral patterned paper.  To the bottom of the card I added a piece of evening surf card stock with a dark blue ribbon added across the center of it.  I added 3 blue Twinkle Goose Bumps to the center of the ribbon.  To the top of the card I cut a piece of vibrant blue card stock and added it to a piece of the evening surf card stock.  I punched the bottom of the evening surf using an eyelet lace border punch.  I colored the iamge and backed it in evening surf and then again in white and added it to one side of the vibrant blue card stock.  I stamped hearts beside the image and colored them in with markers.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
