Crafty Catz Challenge #309 Kids

This weeks challenge over at Crafty Catz is 'Kids' and the fun image I have used from the sponsor Crafty Sentiments is called Harriet. I thought this image would be perfect for a cute Valentine's card. I coloured the image using my Chameleon pens. I like these pens for smaller image and clothes but I still haven't found the knack for doing anything to big, especially larger faces without them looking wrong.

I used a variety of dies to make this card and these include: Spellbinders grand circles and scalloped circles (for the card base and layers), X Cut Hearts for the hearts on the base and the banner is from LaLa Land Crafts. The flowers are the large and small dies from Memory Box (code: LR0162). The middle hearts and the layers for my greeting is made using my Brother Scan 'n' Cut.

The papers are from the Nitwits kit Butterfly Kisses and the dotty cardstock is from Hunkydory.

This card is for the following challenges:
