Love Letter blog Hop

Anyone reading my blog on a regular basis, knows that I have discovered the world of digis recently and I have really using them and discovering new companies. One of them that I really like is Michelle Perkett Studio. I love images that are fun to color and hers are! So when I had the chance to participate in a Blog Hop using this fun image, I signed up. Hopefully you arrived here from Sammi's blog. If you want to check out the rest of the blogs you can find the complete list of participants here

Here is my card. I used the digi image Love Letter Fairy and after printing her, colored her with Copic markers and then I used a a Sakura glitter pen on her wings. I made a larger card than I normally do, it measures 5 x 7. Since I do not have paper this size to make into a card, I used a store bought card from my pre-card making days and I added my card front to that card as my card base. It had a blank inside so I was able to add my own "love letter" for my hubby's Valentine card. I used paper from Basic Grey and ribbon and heart shaped rhinestones from Hobby Lobby. 
I even decorated the inside of the card, using the same patterns that are on the front of the card. My love letter was written with a gold metallic pen.

Thanks for stopping by today. Your next stop on the hop is Alison. The entire Blog Hop list can be found here.

Great card and i love that you improvised with recycling a card. I am looking at different size cards now with using the digis because the normal size i use leaves little room for embelishments.
