Greetings friends.  The holidays are over, so it is time to start thinking about Valentines!  I really like Valentines Day because I think it is great to have a holiday dedicated to appreciating those you love.

For my card today, I used the brand new Heart Arrangement image and colored it with an assortment of Copic Markers.  People sometime ask me how I choose which Copic markers to use.  In this case, I stamped the Love is All image, embossed it in white, and painted it with Peerless Watercolor paints.  I then chose Copic markers that were closest in color to my background.

For a bit of accent, I added some Glossy Accents to one of the hearts and popped up my central image with some foam tape.  

Don't forget to visit the other designers for a chance to win prizes!
