Bellarific Friday: Be Mine

Hi all,
Well, if everything has gone according to plan, I just got back from my trip to New York yesterday! I've been there a couple of times before, and it's always a great city!  Does anyone have any favourite places to shop or eat there?  I'd love to know all its secrets :-)

Anywho, it's Friday again, which means we have a brand new Bellarific Friday challenge over on the Bloggabella!  We were challenged to make either a Valentines/love card or make a red/white/pink card.  Ya know, the big day is creeping up on us - only 11 days away!  I hope you are ready to spend some quality time with your special someone!  I have such great memories of Valentines Day just because of my mom.  Even when we were kids, she would always get us a card and a present - it was such a fun holiday!

Here's my card:

The base is Pretty In Pink CS, and the next layer is a piece of Real Red Prints DSP, with black and white mats.  The strip across the bottom is a plain black piece, then a white mat punched with my Martha Stewart crown edge punch. 
Below that, I added some sparkly red letters from Recollections, and a Martha Stewart Gerbera Daisy sticker in the middle.

I stamped Valentina onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with Copics.  I also added some black Sakura Glaze pen to her eyes and some of the spots on the box.
The panel behind her was made using Classic and Scallop Circle Nesties along with black, white, and Real Red CS.  I embossed the red circle with the Cuttlebug Houndstooth folder for some extra texture.

Copics used:
*Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, R02, YR00
*Hair: C3, C7, 100
*Box: R81, R85, R89
*Bows: R20, R43, R46

Next week's challenge???  The 3rd Sketch for the year!!!  Just make a project using the below sketch and any of the images sold at Stamping Bella, and submit it to Emily ( by Thursday night.  You'll be entered to win some Bella Bucks and your card will be published on the Bloggabella!

Make sure you have a fantastic weekend!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
