Sassy Cheryl's Color Me Challenge

Okay, I have to say that I asked Sassy Boss Lady (Sassy Cheryl) to create a take off of the beautiful Candy Cane Christmas Girl and create a Valentine image..and she did!!!.Isn't she wonderful?(the image and Cheryl ):

I had so much fun coloring this beautiful image for the Color Me Challenge which Cheryl runs every Tuesday on her blog.  The image was colored with copic markers and the border sponged with distress ink.
The image was mounted on beige cs which had been run through the french script cuttlebug folder, love that folder for vintage pieces.  The main cs is from a glittery striped piece I had left from the holidays. 
The tiny scalloped edge bordering the two outside edges of the main image are strips of ribbon, isn't that pretty.  The hearts were cut with spellbinder dies and the antique buttons were added to the heart and flower in the upper left hand corner.
If you have time stop by the store and pick up this darling image called Lonely Valentine Girl  for 2.00 and play along.  You have until Monday.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week-end.  We are supposed to get a 48 hour snow storm that could dump up to 10 inches of snow on us before Tuesday...hope they are wrong !!!
