Teenage Lizzie Valentine

This is a portion of another Daisy D's two-sided cardstock. It presented me with a different color scheme than I am used to working with. The aqua and white glitter cardstocks add fun pizzazz and the red glitter stick-on hearts pull the red glitter on Lizzie's candy box and the ribbon together. The aqua and white hearts are Cuttlebug diecuts, as is the lattice trim at the top. Lizzie's furry coat inspired the addition of just a touch of feather for texture. This week is the first time I have used the feathers in the cards and it's a fun embellishment! I am very happy with this finished product.

... and Lizzie's close up!

I still have a few more cards to post this week, then I will be moving on to some new and fabulous stamps I just got in the mail!
