For the challenge, I pulled out a favorite stamp set, Heart Flowers by Limited Edition. Using Tsukineko Rocket Red, I stamped the large flower and "my heart belongs 2U" sentiment onto kraft cardstock and cut them out. I colored the flower using Sakura red gel pen, Signo white pen and the clear Stardust pen. In the center of the flower, I added a clear dew drop. I also used the Stardust pen to trace over the sentiment to add a little sparkle. I adhered the May Arts red hearts/white ribbon as a stem and tied a sheer white polka dot ribbon to it. Then I glued the cut out and colored flower to the top of the "stem" and attached the sentiment with a popdot. It was an easy card and fun using the pens to color the flower!
