You Make My Heart Soar

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope your day is filled with lots of love...and flowers...and chocolate...  :D

Today starts off a new challenge at the Tilda's Town challenge blog and our theme this week is Anything Goes with optional Bling.  As always, Tilda's Town is offering up a lovely prize for our winner.

This little cutie is Sweet Tilda With Balloon from the 2014 Animal Of The Year Collection.  I know there aren't 99 balloons, but that song has been in my head the whole time and was actually the inspiration for my card.  My "bling" is the glittery word "Valentine" that I cut using my Cricut and coated with Xmas Red Stickles.

The Eiffel Tower and the leaves are Sizzix dies.  The border punch is Martha Stewart.  Since I don't have a corner punch to match, I mitered the corners.  The Balloons were punched with miscellaneous punches that are so old, they don't have manufacturer names on them.

Copic Markers:  Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, R01, R20  Hair: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44  Outfit: C1, C3, C5, C7, C9  Balloons & Lace Collar: R20, R22, R24, R29, R59

Here is the inside...

PS   I had to show you what my wonderful husband and best friend of 25 years gave me for Valentines Day.  (Apparently, Copic markers grow like flowers somewhere).
This was such a happy surprise after such a crappy Friday the 13th.  I got photo bombed at an intersection after being stuck in a jam for 30 minutes, I nicked the bumper of my truck on a shopping cart corral, I dropped a brand new bottle of probiotics, which resulted in me having to move several large kitchen appliances to retrieve them, and I forgot to take the recycle bin to the curb.  UGH!
