I really like how this valentine card turned out. This is my DT card for the Aud Sentiments challenge "Use a Love Sentiment" 
 I started by taking the doily circle from the Easter Cricut cartridge.  I used cricut craft room to weld two of the doilies together for the card base.
I folded the front in half and then decorated with die cuts and stamps.
I wanted to try out a new coloring technique and make her outfit look like it was covered in sequins.  If you want to see how to do this, you can view THIS video on youtube. I did use some extreme glitter paint after I colored with copics for a little extra sparkle and shine.

Project Details:
Stamp: Stop In The Name Of Love Tilda from Magnolia Stamps
Copics: E00, E04, E11, E13, E21, R20, T0, T1, T3, T7, E57, E35, E53, E50
Spellbinders scalloped heart dies
Easter Cricut cartridge
Stop In Name of Love Sentiment Stamp: Magnolia Stamps
Bee Mine Sentiment: Rubber stamp from Michael's dollar bin
Flutter Tree die from Spellbinders

Entered in following challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons: Love is in the air
