Happy Valentine's Day, Lillian!

I couldn't post this card since I didn't want Lillian to see it before she received it on Valentine's Day! I ended up writing her an e-mail telling her to NOT look at my blog! How do you keep something a secret on a blog?!

The image is by Mo Manning. I colored it with Copics and I used Glossy Accents on the heart and papers on the ground as well as her lips.  I used an EK border stamp, iridescent rhinestones, a paper doily and some lace from my stash. I put Stickles on the flowers in her hair. The heart in the middle of the silk bow is a button. I don't know what company made the sentiment...I've unmounted all my stamps and didn't note the companies.

Happy Valentine's Day, Lillian, and I hope it was as wonderful as you are!

                                                                                Hugs, Gail
