Patricia here. I have a great card for Valentine's day!! Isn't she cute!!! I hope you feel inspired with this card with a Whimsie Doodles image. Her name is Honey Bee and you can find her in the Valentine section of the shop.
For the background I stamped some bees and honey jars. I think they are from Stampin' up. I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. That cardstock wasn't very good with the markers so I didn't even try to blend colors. But I like the result. I hardly ever use patterned paper in my cards, mostly because I don't have much (and I don't want to buy it) and what I have is not as cute as I would like for my cards, so it was nice to make my own patterned paper. I will do that more.
I hope you like the card!! For details about the colors visit my blog here.
