What would you do if a person popped out of your box of chocolates?

Hi All,

I love what Stamping Bella is doing these days - their images and sentiments are so adorable!  I decided to make a Valentine's Day card today, as the season is quickly approaching.  Now, either this is a really small elf-girl, or a really GIANT box of chocolates - take it as you will.

My card base is Blush Blossom, then a layer of Whisper White, then a layer of Basic Black punched with the EK Success Fleur de Lis edge punch.  Next, I put a strip of Blush Blossom across that, which was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder (can't remember the name of this one.  After that, I tied some white organdy ribbon across it in a knot, and added a knot of Pink Gingham ribbon on top of that.

For the main panel, I stamped Valentina in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Solar White CS, coloured her with Copic markers, and cut her out with Classic Circle Nesties.  I added a Basic Black circle and a Whisper White Scallop circle.

Then, I took one of those clip thingies from the Hodgepodge Hardware Antique Brass kit (retired SU), tied some Pretty in Pink and some Pink Ginham ribbons around it, and popped it onto the circle panel.  I am still deciding whether I should add a sentiment to the left side, but we'll see.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
