Wish From the Heart

I love making Valentine cards...maybe it's partly because I love the color combo of red, black, and white which can be so clean or dramatic or any style you wish. That would  be a good challenge...any way you  wish!
I just had to have this new release from Sassy Cheryl "Sassy Sally's Heart Balloon"...she is so cute! I decided after printing her on white cardstock to paper piece her dress, bow, and balloon using some scraps from stash. I colored her with Copics, I used a border of hearts at the top edge of the card over a red satin ribbon that shows through the small cut out hearts. Not to waste anything, I added some of the small hearts as if to show they are falling from the top edge.  The card base is white and the mat under the image is the same DP as her dress.

Challenges:
Simon Says: Let's get Paper Piecing.
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge: Use a digi.
Shopping Our Stash Challenge: Use your oldest ribbon. This is an old acetate satin ribbon that I have had before I started carding. Must be 10 years +. Behind the cutout hearts.
Digital Tuesday Challenge: Favorite color combo. Must be  fave combo of red, white, and black.
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge: Use your favorite color combo.  Red, white, and black.
C.R.A.F.T.  challenge:  Valentine's Day or Love

Supplies:
Stamp: Sassy Cheryl Digi, Flourishes Heart Lines
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics: E 0000,00,11,30,31,33,37
N4,7, R20,29,59
Papers: All from stash
Punch: EK Success Heart Border
