Happy Valentine's Day Mom

I whipped up this Valentine's Day card and sent it to my dear mom.  I definitely wanted to use the Cherry Blossom image from the "Lunar Extras" stamp set by Mama Elephant from Island Scrapbooking to create an Asian scene.   The dark pink Cherry Blossoms are my favorite so I inked them with Copics in that color.  "Mieko" by Sister Stamps was perfect for this scene as I was able to have her hold the heart-shaped balloon by cutting a little bit around her hands with an X-Acto knife, then tuck the string underneath.  Having to use "thin" string, I used 3 of the 6 strands from my embroidery floss.  Hope this cards brings a big smile to Mom's face.

Other ingredients:
"Puddle" image by C. C. Designs
Balloon die by Paper Smooches
"Stitched Landscape" for the hillside by Poppy Stamps from Island Scrapbooking
Grass stamp by Viva Las Vegasstamps

Awww, Karen your Valentines Day card for your mom is super SWEET! So clever how you cut away the mocha from Mieko to make her hold the heart balloons! Never thought about doing, that makes the Mieko stamp really versatile...can't wait to try this too!
