The little gal's dressed is paper pieced and I have accented the heart in her hair, the red candy hearts and the bow on the box with glitter. I had to crop the top of the box to make this image work, otherwise it would have been too big. I just adhered the piece after I matted the image. I used some Bella Dots and ribbon for embellishing. I really love the DP; it's from last year...Basic Grey Sugar Rush collection.

I have another question for you.... I was reading a thread on SCS and the poster was considering decreasing her CS colors to around 15. I don't know about you, but I like to have options...lots of options! When picking CS for this card, I think I had about 6 options on the table. So how about you? Do you think you could cut your CS stash to the bare minimum?
Thanks for stopping by today; enjoy your day!
Simply adorable! You can't go wrong with PI stamps.
This is so cute, love the little box hanging off the edge. Beautiful papers, too. I do love these sweet little PI images! No way to decreasing CS colors. I have so many colors, yet still I'm sometimes struggling to get a good match with my dsp. I like options, too.
This is so sweet, Angela. Great DP for a Valentine Card- love it. I always like your paper piecing.
No, I could not cut my cardstock to a minimum 15. No way!! I love your card. These little pure innocense are my favorite little girls after Maggies. You always do a beautiful job of paper piecing. This is a beautiful card.
So a sweet card! Love these little girls. I like what you did with the lid of the box. Great idea!
About the cardstock, no way I could limit myself to 15 colours. I really like it when my cardstock matches my pencils, and my dp (if I use it LOL), so I always need more..... ;)
great valentine! all your details add up to a wow card.
about cs .. while I am like you and like to have options .. the truth is that I probably just use a few colors. The problem is that I am a hoarder and won't use what I have. For example, I bought a package of Soft Sky paper before they stopped selling it (when it was a special color) and now I won't use it ... becuase what if I used it all up!!?? Silly thinking and I am trying to change that. I have 2 bins of cardstock that just sits there ..... maybe the SCS poster is on to something.
