Happy Love Day

This is my first attempt at an easel card.  I used a  rubber stamp image from Simply Betty Valentine Steampunks new releases..They are simply adorable! I colored her using copics and pro markers.  I used my nestabilities to cut the frame from a metalic pink card stock, then matted that on black, pink and burgundy card stocks.  I used a fiskars border punch for the strip on the bottom and the paper is from DCWV.  I printed the "Happy Love Day" on my computer and cut out a nestabilities from their label dies.  I added clear rhinestones that I colored with my red ink stamp on the corners to give it weight and stability to hold up the card.  
I am entering this at the following challenges:

  8. This is beautiful! I can't believe it's your first easel. :o) It looks marvelous. I love the papers, sparkly accents, and heart touches throughout... and of course the stamp is colored so beautifully. Darker colors can be so tricky, but yours are flawless. :o) Beautiful!
