I made this fun little Valentine using the sketch Michelle provided for the Tellens Place challenge.  I also used one of the free digital images Terry so generously gives out.  Stop by her site and see whats going on, it's always fun.  This one is not my usual 5 x 7, it is 4 1/2 x 5.  Actually it started out as a 5 x 7, because I was working off a sketch I made in my notebook of what it should look like.  I was not sure about something so I checked back and realized my dimensions were way off!  So I cut away the excess to make it look more like the sketch.
I used my Spellbinders Petite Ovals, and the card stock is DCWV.  I colored it in with my Stampin Up markers, and I used a Copic for the skin color.  I also used my new atyou Spica sky blue glitter marker pen.  I have heard everyone talk about these, I found this one at my LCS on sale so I gave it a try.  I do like it, I don't know if the camera picked it up, but it has a little glitter in the ink, kind of sparkly.  It is the darker blue I used for the trim, belt and boots.  I found the wooden Gotcha! sentiment in the childrens craft section of JoAnns.  Well this was fun, these challenges are really inspiring.  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
