Love/Valentine Card ~ Love You {Lots}

When I first saw the Mojo Monday sketch
this week I knew I wanted to make a card with it.
First I used the masking technique to create my front panel.
After stamping the poppies I colored them with a red Copic
marker then darkened their centers with a black one.
Next I embossed the back panel with this great arrow folder.
Then I added the sentiment using the die cut heart.
 To finish off my card I tucked the hand cut banners under
the heart sentiment and added a little heart shaped sequin.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Flower from the Poppy Birthday stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment from the No Matter What stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Heart cut using the Wavy Hearts die set from Verve Stamps.
*Embossed using the Arrow #2 folder from Sizzix.
*Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Memento.
*R37 and 100 markers from Copics.

May your day always be filled with love.
