Be Mine

This will be my last Valentine's project for this  year and I chose to play with the Hero Arts "A Natural Love" Digis.  I bought this last year and never had the chance to play with it. 

This month's theme is Love & Lace and a sketch challenge with a fun fold technique.

I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I went with an easel card and added the love & lace too.

The heart and patterned paper are from Martha Stewart's Valentine paper pad. The squirrels were colored with prismacolored pencils and I added some googly eyes. I also added some lace from my stash and the sentiment is one that I typed up "My Heart is overflowing with Love". 

TIP: To make the banner sentiment, fold ends back on themselves to create the look.

A colorful yet endearing card. We had two squirrels this morning at the window on the birdfeeder no less, fighting like cats and dogs. Your 2 have restored my faith in friendly squrrels.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours; we love that you have taken time to share your wonderful work with us at Word Art Wednesday.
