Sweet Elephant Valentine (Just Some Lines image)

Hello, everyone!  I have a Valentine card to share today.  I chose an adorable image called Sweet Elephant from Just Some Lines.  I paper-pieced it with paper from MME (Indie Chic Saffron 6x6 pad), fussy-cut, and coloured the flower, eyes, and mouth with Tombow markers.  I added a tiny heart gem on the flower.

The papers used on my card are from Momenta.  I die-cut three hearts using my Spellbinders Classic Hearts and added a heart gem and a beautiful pink butterfly that I received in a RAK from my friend Gail (thank you - I've been hoarding your RAK goodies too long - I want to use them!).  The sentiment is a wood-mounted stamp from Anita's and I stamped it on vellum, coloured the heart, and hand-cut into a banner.

My design was inspired by the sketch over at Your Next Stamp (see below).  I finished off my card with 3 tiny heart gems at the upper left corner.
