Valentine Challenge Card

This fun sketch is by Melanie Navarro Fuentes from the Yahoo group Magnolia Card & Kit Swaps. This is a fun group stop by and check it out!

After a little struggle with ideas my card ended up turning out okay.
Thank goodness for a huge stash of ribbon and embellies! For some reason, I seem to have a problem with using flowers. Each time I set out to make a card, I always feel certain I will use flowers and true to form I did so this time but alas...NO flowers again! The ribbon & buttons looked so cute, I had to use them instead.There are 2 layers of pop-dots to give the card fun dimension. I used vintage K & Co. Valentine DP from my stash with one new addition from Making Memories. All layers were sewn with some extra distressing for fun.
For some added interest I dry embossed the pink heart Tilda is holding and added string. By the way, this Tilda is Butterfly Tilda who had a wing-ectomy! She's the only suitable Tilda I had for this card so I just took off her wings and added a paper-pieced dress and strung heart.
I love the card interior! Mine aren't usually this embellished :-) Again, I used the altered art style of tossing things out in a well-planned but not-looking-it fashion!!I colored Tilda with the following Copics:
Shoes - C1, 3, 5, N7
Socks - RV02, RV21, C1, RV000
Flesh - E50, E00, E0000, E21, R20, R00, R11
Hair - E50, E33, E21, E25
I'm entering this card in these challenges too:
