Pretty in Pink Valentine, FS104

Good morning! What a treat to see the Featured Stamper is BevR! Her work is terrific! I cased the feel and layout of one of her cards, but this is also a very similar layout to a sketch challenge coming soon on Magnolia-licious! What a coincidence!
My card uses Valentine Tilda with envelope and the decorative oval from Alota Rubber stamps. You get 5 ovals and some sentiments in the set! They're really neat for the Tildas to sit in. The dp is Whisper by Prima Marketing and I tried not to cover too much of its beautiful pattern. I used white paper from my Basic Grey Urban Prairie pad for the doily piece. These intricate punches just don't punch card stock well. The solid color back pages on BG 6x6 pads are great for these borders.
I colored Tilda in the following colors:
E00, E02 and R20 for her skin
E31 and E33 for the envelope.
Pinks used on her clothing are R00, R21 , R11, E93 and RV42
When I color (especially her clothing) I always start with the very light shades. You can always make it darker if it's too light.
Thanks for coming to my blog! I really appreciate it!
Have a good day! Cheryl
