SSS140 - Happy Valentine's Day

Today is the first Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge of 2012!  I found this sketch to be a little bit tricky, but I have to say.....I love the end result once I figured it out!

I hadn't inked up this adorable Lili of the Valley image call "The Little Things" in a bit and with Valentine's Day coming up next, I thought now was a good time to ink it up again.  I colored the image with copics.   I used PTI pure poppy, dark chocolate, white, and kraft CS.  That DSP is a piece of scrap so I have no idea from which 6x6 paper pad it belongs.  I used the MFT Die-Namics solid bracket border and added some faux stitching with a white gel pen.  A PTI dark chocolate button and some maraschino red baker's twine completes the card.  Oh, and that sentiment is from the SU teeny tiny wishes stamp set.

Here is the sketch:
