7 Kids Challenge #14- I {heart} you!

It my turn to host the on the 7 Kids Challenge blog. The theme that I chose is I {heart} you! So use hearts somewhere on your project. Check out my sample below:


I colored Tilda with Hearts with copics, and accented her dress trim and wings with stardust stickles. I used a silver spica pen over gray copics for the ground. I also trimmed the heart sentiment with stickles. The white strips across the middle were embossed using the polka dots 5X7 cuttlebug folder. I love this new larger size! I also added some stickles to the raised dots.
