A Twinkle Bean Valentine

Hey everyone!!

Hope you are having a great day!!  Today was a bit stressful, but hoping that this card will cheer me up.  I'm posting it now so that I don't miss out on the Farm Fresh Friday challenge, "Punch It!"

Here is my latest Valentine's Day themed card featuring Twinkle Bean from The Greeting Farm

I have to say that after finishing this card I was definitely cheered up.  Especially after I finished coloring her hair!  Loved how it turned out.  I do see some places where I need to go back in, but all-in-all I loves it.

The paper is from the Love Note 6x6 paper pad from Fancy Pants Designs.  I loved the hearts on the light pink paper, so I trimmed the paper to frame that part of the paper, then used a Fiskars lacey border punch on some black card stock to give it a little frame.  This is the first time I've covered up the cardstock that the paper is glued to.  I usually leave a slight border, but this time I decided to cover it up because I liked how it looked with out the black border.  (The card base is black cardstock in case you were wondering) 

For the sentiment I punched out a medium sized heart and trimmed LOVE out of one of the patterned papers in the paper pad.  Besides the border, there are 10 punched hearts on this card.  I already told you where one of them is but can you tell where the other 9 are?  Here's a guess, look closely at the black paper.  Yep all 9 black hearts are leftover cut outs from the Spellbinder circle hearts die.  I kept them to use for a shaker card or in this case, floating hearts.  :)
Alrighty, it's time for me to get going, hoping you have a wonderful evening!!  

Mahalo for stopping by!!
