Thinking of you

Hi!  I've been kind of slacking with the house chores but it's Friday and I wanted to finish my card for iCopic Challenge #69 -- BG Family and Saturated Canary Challenge #11 -- Anything but square or rectangle.  I only have 3 blue green Copic pens but I love the colors!  I've been using them a lot since I bought them.  I don't know why it wasn't one of my first choices.  And I purchased a new Saturated Canary digi called Honey. 

Okay, so no square or rectangle card.  I went with a heart.  I used my Cheery Lynn heart dies and man, pushing out all those little hearts can be a big pain.  But so worth it in the end.  Now I have tons of little punched out hearts all over my table.  And isn't Honey so pretty?  I love her hair!  Makes me want to grow my hair out again. 

Oh yeah, it is a heart shaped easel card too.  Found lots of tutorials after Google-ing it.  Pretty simple.

I kept the inside kind of simple cause I wanted the front to stand out more.  The sentiment is from PTI's Botanical Silhouettes.

Here's a little close up of Honey.  Her skirt and socks are in BG Copics.  I smeared a little bit of white opal liquid pearls on her socks so they'd be a bit lighter than her skirt.  There is glossy accents on her heart and the bunny's tummy.  I really love to pair bright pink with blue green so I went with that color combo.  I added some brads that were a freebie from Eclectic Paperie when I ordered from them a while ago. 

Oh, did you notice my pink netting?  I loved the color so I saved it from the outside packaging of those Asian rice noodles.  I recycled!  Hehe.  I know my hubby's gonna wonder what the heck is that pink thing but it's so fun looking.  And I really think I'm more open minded about stuff like that ever since taking TGF's Heart Journaling class.  Maybe I actually learned something?

Oh, and thanks for all the digi tips!  I usually print mine out on PTI white cardstock but I can't color right away.  I used to have a different printer and I could just color it after printing.  I guess it will have to do for now. Thanks for reading!
