Project Forty-six Mickey and Minnie in Love

This was a cute little card I made for my hubby for this past Valentine's day. He just loved it. I have to admit this was the second year I made his Valentine's Day card. I just noticed he kept last years card so cute.

OK so here is some personal news .... if you want to skip the personal stuff the instructions for the card are under the photo.
OK so our ADOPTION WAS FINALIZED!!! Yes we are officially the proud parents of two little girls 8 and 10. Mary Rose and Mackenzie Ann. We got the official news on February 8th, what a great Valentine's day present that was. Well then if that is not enough craziness, my family moved back to South Florida. My dad lives here alone, and things were not going good with him. So we are here for a few months before our big move to Orlando. We are hoping to be in the Orlando area some time late summer this year!!! YEAH!!! Can't wait to be down the street from Mickey!!

OK now on to the project!!

the card is a standard A4 size
The paper was real red from Stampin Up
the yellow strip was a scrap from something.
All white is Stampin Up
I first stamped the red background with hearts from Stampin Up's I (heart) Hearts set
     with Stampin Up white craft ink. I let completely dry.

Then I took a 3.5 inch square and stamped the Mickey and Minnie Image with All Night Media's stamp. I then colored in the image using basic Copic colors. My coloring skills are still in the newbie stage. Then I took Stampin Ups real red stamp ink and a sponge to lightly color the edges.

I then cut two pieces 2 X 1.5 inches and Stamped the words using some basic word set I have.
I placed a yellow piece about 1.5 inches wide and 5.5 inches long and on top of that put some sparkly black ribbon. All the mickey head crystals were bought at a local craft store.

Ops ... I made a coloring boo-boo on Minnie's bow .... so I just took the stamp and stamped the image on Stampin Up's real red paper and cut it out and placed it on my image.

Hope you like it!
