Greeting Card Kids Valentine Card

I love cards with a Heart... and here is one. I wanted to use my favorite stamp set of 2010 "Greeting Card Kids". I also used the new stamp set "You're a Gem", from the new mini starting in just a few days. I am really excited about this new mini, and even more excited about starting a new Holiday Season with Valentines, St Paddy's Day, and Easter.

I just love using the aqua painter with the watercolor crayons. Look at that cute face, I just love how her cheeks turned out. I even made her knees a little pink.
I also used Mary Jo's Sketch Challenge. She has some great Sketch ideas, so get over and check it out!!
